How many of you decorate for Valentines...and do you do much or just a small area? When I look for photos on the web to add to our Inspiration album, there's really not a lot for V-Day (or St Patricks). And as you may remember, I'd never decorated for any of those holidays before coming here, then suddenly it was EVERY holiday. LOL. Enablers!
I keep looking at our album pictures, and even pix of my Val decor in 2010, trying to get inspired. I didn't get my decorations out last year since Dad's health was failing fast and he died the day after Valentines. And now that has really affected me wanting to decorate this year it seems. (so much for 2012 improving my state of mind! Darn it.)
But aside from Dad's loss, there is Mr O. Because of him, I never even liked Valentines! He's the most UN-romantic man around!! I can deal with him being obivious to my decorating, but it just seems kind of dumb for me to do a holiday that is so meaningless to him. Tho I did decorate for a few years cause you guys taught me how fun holiday decor is. ;o) Enablers!
Anyway, I have been yo-yo-ing on what to do and finally told myself to either decorate this year OR get rid of those decorations!! Will see which way it goes I guess. But I am pretty sure from now on, I will forever remember it as the last day with my Dad.
(Can you decorate with hearts?)
Maybe St Patricks will perk me up, I am Irish. ;o)
