Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I am a super cheesy romantic and I love Valentine's Day.  Unfortunately I've been single for a REALLY long time.  Every year I find things to do for myself, like a spa day, getting my favorite foods, going shopping, etc.  Just pampering myself.  As much as I enjoy these things, part of me still gets a little sad on Valentine's and wishes I had someone to share it with.

Don't get me wrong, I have a great life and I love the way things are going.  Most of the time I am happy with where I'm at, but I have days now and then where it stings a little bit.  I didn't think that I would be 31 and still single.  I thought that I would be married and have kids by now, but that hasn't been the Lord's plan for my life yet.  I'm still holding out hope and I know that God has the right person out there for me.  And I can tell you this, I will not settle for just anyone, but I will wait for the right one.  My life is too great to settle for someone just because I might have times where I feel lonely or sad.  It's funny because most of my single friends want to be married and most of my married friends say it would be so great to be single and get to do whatever you want!  So I am just going to enjoy the stage of life that I am in and hope that one day I'll have someone special to share it with.

I am getting together with my family on Wednesday night for a Valentine's celebration and my dad always buys me presents for Valentine's Day so that will be fun.  He is so great!

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and gets to spend it with the ones you love.

Lots of love! <3

  5. You are a beautiful woman, on the inside and out! You will find that special someone. I didn't marry my soul mate until I was 34 ( and I thought my time had run out).
    I'll tell you what my friend used to tell me...
    "He's not ready yet. God is still creating him. He'll be perfect!".

  7. I love that expression. It was read at my weddin, long, long ago. And I never thought I would meet someone and boom, when I wasn't looking he dropped into my life. Love endures. But you do have to do a lot of work to keep it going. Happy Valentines Day to you!

  16. He will appear when you least expect and aren't looking! I love that your dad is so sweet and wonderful! Mine doesn't have a clue unfortunately but my mom and nana and I are always overboard with every holiday including Valentine's Day so we always make it special for each other too.
