My Sweet Valentine

Valentine's Day is upon us. Although my husband and I don't get caught up in the big celebration of the day (we limit ours to a romantic dinner/no gifts), I know many couples who do look forward to the day-- well at least my female friends. Not so sure about the guys. My advice to those couples is to use this day to be more creative. Online shopping is cool, but, you did that at Christmas. Retail shopping is always an option, but, a more expensive one as well. Wait for it....wait for it.....hit your local estate sales and put those creative juices to work! You can find some sales beginning as early as Wednesday's now ( or Visualize yourself walking through a home and you come upon a beautiful Longaberger basket; hmmm, what can we fill this basket with? Picnic items with the promise of an indoor picnic during the wintry weather? Books and bubble bath maybe? Or, CD's and movies for a romantic night in? The possibilities are endless. Dare to be different and surprise your boo with great finds from an estate sale!
