Happy Valentine’s Day!
If I have learned anything about love and marriage, it is that you have to learn to give from the inside. Breakfast Lasagna made out of Cinnamon Raisin French Toast for a quiet, breezy Florida morning? “Yes, please!”, my wife says excitingly. That’s love right there. We’re so getting ready for Valentine’s Day, it’s not even funny.
Cathy—my wife’s cousin—and I had a chance to go alone to her local Dollar Tree to teach her the ropes. They had EVERYTHING for Valentine’s Day!
I mean, this spot had more things than they have online or in any of my local stores. Let’s just say we went absolutely ham and bought everything they had in pink, red and white.
We went back to her house with all our supplies in hand ready to conquer the world. Weee!
The two of us got our creative juices flowing and made a ton of festive decor for their house. A beautiful felt heart wreath for the front door, candelabras for the bathroom with festive ribbon. Gosh, we even got some table scatter for the breakfast bar, glittery hearts to pour into potpourri bowls around the house.
She helped me make some of my Valentine’s Day Heart Centerpieces to place around the apartment. We snagged some “Be Mine” window clings for the French door that leads to the balcony. And, of course, our absolute favorite DIY to date was the Conversation Heart Sugar Scrub we made together.

Keep me posted. You know I love to know these things. And, try to do something sexy. It’s the time of year for that. Don’t miss your chance.
