Four Favorites of the Week: St. Valentine's Day Edition

As we all know, Valentine's Day is coming quick! This Monday! Here are some of the best things I've found that all have one thing in common: LOVE.

1. The Way to Love is Anthony de Mello's last meditation compiled into this short and powerful little book. The main message is that in order to love, we must give up our attachment and understand that happiness is attainable through oneself. de Mello combines a variety of philosophies that make this book truly unique.

2. This recipe sounds delicious! To make them even more fitting for the Valentine's Day occassion, try using a heart cookie cutter or making letters that spell a message. You could also use pre-made sugar cookie dough if you're in a time crunch. Raspberry cream cheese frosting? YUM!

3. Remember my paint swatch post? Well, this is a great (not to mention affordable) idea for making quick Valentine's cards that uses swatches too. This would be fun for little kids!

4. Hugh MacLeod runs a blog titled Gaping Void and he draws cartoons that are so deep and profound. This is one of my favorites, but he has numerous love-themed cartoons in his gallery that you can buy as prints. I think this would make a great gift (not to mention great wall decor) for your honey. 

One lesson I learned this week: don't take love for granted.

Have a very happy Valentine's Day & don't forget to tell the ones who mean the most to you that you love them!
