for blog posts and social media
by brittany taylor | February 12, 2018
As an adult, I’m pretty sure late winter would be better if we still glued doilies onto Cheerio boxes and sent each other cheesy valentines. Just because your inbox isn’t bursting with puns and lollipops doesn’t mean you can’t find a little fun in Valentine’s Day.
Call me a kid-at-heart. Call me a dork. Call me a crafty little critter who thinks too much about Sweethearts and overlarge Hershey’s Kisses. No matter what you call me, though, I know I’m right. Whether you’re single or coupled up, happy or sad, sugar-free or gorging on chocolate, there’s always a little love lurking in February 14 and the days leading up to it.
Ready to get your brain in gear for the day of hearts? (Oh, I’ve got V-Day wordplay that’ll last for years.) If ya don’t find inspiration here, ya might wanna move on to St. Patrick’s Day.
