. . . not so much the over commercialized way that the retail chains have turned it into more of a mass marketing buying frenzy. Actually, its really just the kitschy and cheap Valentine stuff that line the front isles of every grocery store from now until February 14th that puts me in the Anti Valentine’s Day spirit. That is just the handmade, Indie Girl in me! If you are going to give, be original and pick something handmade or be creative and make something for your sweetie.

“I am happy to just spend the day with you!”
However, this year since my husband is serving a one year active duty tour in Georgia, I most likely will not even get to see him on Valentine’s Day. I did however set up a wish list board on Pinterest for him to shop for me. . . just in case he does catch the ‘buying bug’ and decide to spend a few $$$’s on me.
