This post is in partnership with Catholic Central, however, as always opinions are 100% my own.
Love The Universal Language
Growing up you don’t realize how functional or dysfunctional your home life is, but when you realize later in life your childhood wasn’t always like someone else’s you have to come to terms with it. While the story off all of that is a lot longer than I have time today, there was always something I could count on. Love.
You read that right, I was one of the lucky ones that would always know that love was and had an endless supply of it from several family members. While not everyone is lucky enough to have that, I had several family members that showed what love is by their actions. Growing up I knew my grandparents were in “love” just by the way they looked at each other, and no matter what they were doing. And you know what, I never once seen them fight, so either they never fought or it was always out of my line of sight. Nana and Papa have both been gone for several years, but each day I try to remember that showing my loved ones that they are loved. Showing your love isn’t always about the material things in life, but how you talk to your family and friends as well as how you treat them daily. See that love?? That’s true love and everyone around them way just as happy and in LOVE!
Month of Love?
Did you know that February is commonly known as the month of love? We celebrate the life of Saint Valentine who is the patron of love, young people and happy marriage. While we are Empty Nesters we still take the time to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our daughter, but this year it will have to be a little different. We usually spend the evening in and have surf n turf prepared at home to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Want some new ideas to help you celebrate St. Valentine’s at home?
10 Tips to Rock St. Valentine’s at home contains simple things you can do at home to show appreciation to the one you love without having to spend every penny in your savings account! It also includes some cool facts about the “whys” and history behind some of the most time-honored Saint Valentine’s Day traditions!
This year our daughter and her family are living in Cheyenne, Wyoming and we are sending a fun gift their way. Baby “Tater” as we call him on the blog is getting a fun Valentine’s Day Themed book, and Liz is receiving a Princess Rose Dome that includes a Red Rose LED Glass Dome elegant table lamp, a gold-tone “Love” bangle bracelet and a wooden perfume card. While Austin is getting a gift certificate for their “night in” from a local restaurant called Sanford’s Grub & Pub. I believe it will be the perfect Valentine’s Day Present and one they will enjoy for years to come. While they show each other just how much the Love one another and of course little Tater too!
