Seeing that it's Feb. 10, I'll give you one guess as to what this week's roundup is going to involve. Yep...the day of love is upon us, and the Internet is abuzz with aphrodisiacs, love poems and song ideas to "set the mood." And while those are all well and good, I like to take the romance out of February 14 and concentrate on love instead. And not just love for your "other," but for your friends, your family and anyone else who makes your world better. Because, let's be honest: Where would we be without them? So get to making one of these cute Valentines, and let those in your love nest in on what they mean to you.

I found this photo above on pinterest last week by Annette Pehrsson (which is beyond words beautiful) and it reminded me that I really need a haircut. Bad! So, maybe I'll do that this weekend.
