Etsy Wish List

I'll admit it: in the past, Valentine's Day hasn't been my favorite. And not in the cliched "I don't believe in Hallmark holidays" kind of way. I know that it's a real holiday commemorating a few Christian martyrs by the name of Valentine, and that the day is celebrated with agreeable undertones of love, affection, and all of the warm fuzzies that come with a relationship. It's an appropriate time to remind the ones you love that you do, in fact, love them. I have no reason to be jaded. It's a lovely day.

But, no matter the circumstance, Valentine's Day has always been a day much like any other. And this year, I've decided that this is capital "L" Lame. We're married. We love each other. 7 1/2 months ago we confessed this love in front of over 150 family and friends. And if I can find one more reason to get dressed up, decorate the house, send mail and eat sugar, (by George!) I think I will.

We have reservations for the night of February 14th. We've decorated, albeit conservatively. We made cookies and used our heart-shaped cookie cutters. We plan on creating and sending out letters in the spirit of the day. I have something in mind for Blake, and tonight I scoured Etsy for the best steals of the season. Guys, if you're looking for something to buy your girlfriend/fiance/wife and girls, if you're looking for something to add to your own wish list, here are some options...
