Are you looking for some inspired last-minute Valentine's celebration ideas?
Do you loathe Valentine's and how it elevates romantic love as I do?
Either way you are in the right place....wait...what? How can that be?
Well, here's a little secret...I don't personally care for Valentine's Day and I will tell you why.
I grew up my whole life without a boyfriend and in school, it was obvious that you weren't quite up to par or special if you didn't have a significant other on Valentine's Day.
That being said, my mom was always super good about making us feel loved on Valentine's and even sending me balloons one time when she knew I was really struggling.
Fast forward many years, and I never trusted Valentine's for my own "romantic life" either. It felt as if my husband HAD to get me something and that in turn made me feel like an obligation or a box to check. I should clarify, he NEVER made me feel like that and always was very genuine about it, but I just didn't prefer having the special stuff performed because of a day on the calendar vs his own genuine wanting to on a random day because he thought of it...make sense?
Fast forward more years and we would have our own children and they are girls and LOVE to decorate and craft and celebrate. So, for that reason, I do like Valentine's day and we make sure to make them feel special and loved on that day as well.

But, what has happened is a bit of a shift for me...I now long to shower others with appreciation on that day ( and every day really) that I am NOT romantically linked to. Romantic love is only one type of love and it definitely is NOT the end all be all.
God's love is.
See how He loved us?
John 3:16 tells us how His amazing love played out, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
So, with that, let's change the paradigm of Valentine's Day and go into it hearts blazing with love and affection to love those that maybe would otherwise go unseen on this day on the calendar.
So, here are some Valentine's Ideas and mini cards to help get you started.
