A LOVE-ly Weekend Wish

Thank you for all of the love on the hairstyle :) I would love to see photos if you tried it out too; I'm sure you looked fabulous!

I received the sweetest package of love from the Valentine swap that I participated in. Big hug and thank you to Jessica for all of the lovely goodies and also to Tamara of Memory Bean Designs for hosting such a great event! xoxo

Are you doing anything exciting this weekend, or are you making plans for the actual Valentine's day?
I'm going to a Valentine's Tea Party on Sunday which should be quite fun! 
On Valentine's Day, I shall be drowning my sorrows of singleness in my new fondue set...haha just kidding, but I really do have an awesome mini fondue kit that I'll be enjoying with some friends :) 
Come on over, I'll make you some! 
cute, right? 

I wrote this around Valentine's Day last year, and so I thought I'd share it with you all since it's that time again. 

My Forever Valentine
Valentine’s Day: that one lovely day full of sweet and beautiful things given to eachother to represent love; that one day I’m not going to be lonely on because I’ve got the greatest valentine in the whole world: GOD.
He gave me roses; vines and bushes full of blooming beauties in all different colors
He gave me art; a lovely sunrise and sunset that covers a canvas which we call sky.
He gave me sweet things: in the form of friends, laughter and amazing moments
He wrote me poetry: throughout the centuries, he’s been writing and speaking love through his word; he romanced me.
He gave me diamonds; strewn all across the sky for me to gaze at and a pearl that glows brightly.
He gave me a hug; his presence is closer than I know, and he’s wrapped me in his arms to stay there forever.
He gave me LOVE; in the form of a gift that I could never repay him for and for which I am eternally grateful; He gave me HIMSELF.
So, instead of worrying about going to dinner or a movie with a “valentine”, I’m enjoying the day with my forever Valentine who has blessed and given me more than I could ever fully thank or repay him for. What a day we shall have together!

1 John 4:16 NIV And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

 Here's a bit of love from me to you! Hope you have the most lovely weekend! :)

Blessings and Abundant Love,

Oh you are too adorable.
A valentines tea party? How fun! I want to go to one now. You best be taking photos and documenting this my dear!

I don't have any valentines plans yet, Matt and I are keeping it cheap since we need to save save save! But we'll probably end up eating at the Outback, since that's what we've done the past two years!

Happy Valentines Candice :)
