Preparing for Valentine’s Day

04 Feb

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!
