We are making preparations to help you express your affections on Valentine’s Day! With just over a week to go, Tresa’s been wrapping cute boxes of chocolates, in several different containers. We’re stocked up on Valentine cards as well — from the heartfelt to the funny.
If you’d like to go a step or two further for the ones you love, we’ve got playful heart and flower themed notepads with pens; lots of trendy accessories, including scarves, bags, jewelry, and more; journals and notecards, gift books and lots of great romance novels and poetry.
I’m a big advocate of the love poetry route — whether you write it yourself, or find it in a book. There’s something about Valentine’s day that allows us to pause for a moment, and savor a poem, even though we may be so busy the rest of the time that it’s hard to slow down long enough. I’ll be working to find a selection of love poems myself next week, in preparation for a midwinter tea I’ve been invited to speak at. I’m looking at some of the greats like Emily Dickinson and Pablo Neruda, and also tracking down a few lesser-known morsels of verse that embody the sentiment of love so well.
That’s all I’ve got for now. I hope to see you all soon! And remember, this year, take some time to Express your feelings of love for the wonderful people in your life!
