Hello Friends and Happy Valentine’s Day!! Of course on Love Day, we’re wearing our favorite pom pom heart cardigans. Madeline always says reminds me that “hearts mean I love you!” So that is just another reason why I love them so much 🙂 We have these cardigans in four colors, and we are usually matching in them. But this time, I decided to alternate colors with our looks, and I just love the way it turned out! I have the pale pink cardigan with lavender underneath. And Madeline has her lavender cardigan with pink underneath. Speaking of lavender, trust me when I say y’all need this this top! It’s more than amazing and comes in five colors. It’s longer in the front and in the back, and cuts up on the sides. The material is on the thinner side, so you can easily knot it in the front as I have here, or front-tuck it. It’s just the best top ever and a great one to get you into spring.
I also wanted to share a little message with y’all on valentine’s Day. Basically, it’s my take on this holiday, if you will haha. This morning, I asked Madeline why we celebrated today. She said, “Because it’s a day to let everyone know how much I love them!”. I thought her answer was so sweet. And so true!
I feel like a lot people have hard feelings torward February 14th. And it is usually because of feelings from not having a significant other or a date planned tonight. When you look at the commercial view of the holiday, it is so easy to think that! Or maybe it goes much deeper than that for you, as the hurt comes from loosing someone very special to you that you would usually spend this holiday with. I’ll be honest, I went through a period where I felt the same feelings on this holiday too. But being a mama has taught me to much more to this!
As many of y’all know, I’m a single mom. I don’t really have anything planned for tonight, but goodness I wouldn’t have it any other way!!! Madeline is my valentine, forever and always, so a chill night with her sounds absolutely amazing to me!
Here’s what I’m getting at. I want YOU to know today that you are SO loved!!! Don’t ever let anyone make you feel otherwise. If this holiday makes you feel left out of the loop, don’t let it! Think of all those around you that fill your heart and life with so much joy. Let them know just how much you love them today. Then, think of all those that truly love you. You are a jewel! There is absolutely no one else like you. You are unique and beautiful. Embrace that! Embrace yourself. Let your confidence shine through and be proud of who you are in Christ. That leads me to one more idea of love to celebrate today. And more importantly, this is one that is absolutely 100% worth celebrating every day! Yes, this is God’s love for YOU! Someone who would give His only son to die for you! Someone who longs for your attention. Someone who will hold your hand through every single walk of life. Someone who cares about every little details in your life and is knitting your life into a beautiful picture that is unique for you. A life story that belongs entirely to You! And although it may be difficult to see at times, it is built on His indescribable love for you. So, so much to celebrate, friends!
You may be in a season right now where things just seem…slow! It may feel like everyone else has it all together and you’re just sitting in the back seat waiting. Well, you just wait! Never underestimate what God can do in your life. But goodness does He love YOU so. very. much. Don’t let the (silliness, to be honest) of this, what is portrayed to be, a “romantic” holiday fool you. There’s so much more to it than chocolates, roses, a hot dates, etc. Think of all those who you have to love. Think of all those who love you. Embrace and love yourself, be proud of who you are in Christ! And most importantly, rejoice in His love for you!
Well, that’s my take on this Valentine’s Day 🙂 If y’all have anything else you’d like to add, I’d love to hear it! Just remember, you are a jewel, more precious than rubies (Proverbs 3:15)!
I hope y’all have a great Thursday!
