Will You Be My Valentine?

I hope the answer is a resounding "YES!"

Last year I did a really fun Vintage Valentines Swap with Rabbit Hollow Prims. My swap was The Queen of Hearts; a papier mache doll that resembled Lily Munster meets Cruella DeVille. LOL! In return, I received a lovely handmade prim doll from One Mockingbird Hill. This year with school, I don't have the time to participate, but I'll sure be on the look out for what great things they come up with again this year!

So, some interesting facts about Valentines Day and just LOVE in general:

- Did you know that ONE BILLION Valentines are sent out each year?
- That women are the largest purchasers of Valentines? Come on guys!
- Valentines cards were popular back in the Middle Ages?
- The oldest Valentines Day card is on exhibit in the British Museum?

And L.O.V.E. - my favorite warm fuzzy feeling......Still a mystery even at my ripe old age... And how does one define it? I like this definition - simple and to the point:

"A feeling of intense desire and attraction towards a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance."

Do you think saying "I heart you" means "I love you". I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments on that!

I wish you all tons of L.O.V.E. this Valentine's Day!!
