Valentine’s Day or Self-Care Day!
We are coming up on February, the month of love! Now love comes in many different forms. It comes in hugs, kisses, thank you cards, and letters to pen pals. It comes in phone calls to friends and family, in a fresh bouquet of flowers, or cuddles from your pooch or beloved pet. And, it also comes in gifts both large and small.
This Valentine’s Day, no matter if you have a partner, you are a widower, or you live alone with your pet or with roommates, I hope you take time to celebrate love. Both the love for others and love for yourself.
Here is a list of a few of my favorite things this month, and gifts to give both yourself and your loved ones now, or for Valentine’s Day. Happy shopping! I love you all.

I enforce Baccarat Rouge 540 over all other scents.
Order a Bouquet with ProFlowers: After my family, my greatest love and delight is nature. Sending a bouquet of flowers is never a burden with this company.
