Just a quick post today about what could be my least favorite holiday. It has the potential to suck the life out of me with all its roses and kisses and heart-shaped-chocolate and pink teddy bears. Am I right?
Instead of being sucked into the commercial portrayal of Valentine's Day, which somehow pressures guys into buying jewelry and girls into buying a new dress, I'm taking a different approach.
We are called to love.
"Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart..."
- 1 Peter 1:22I send Valentines because I want to love on people. And actually, I send them more than just in the middle of February. But, really, couldn't everyone use a little love in the middle of February? Our New Year's Resolutions seem harder these days and we're still months away from spring.
I created a Valentine's Day collection that will span the whole year. It's less covered in hearts and x's and o's and more full of light-hearted design and sincere thought. People need to feel loved. You can make them feel so.

Say "no" to the heart-shaped balloons this year, friends. You can do it.
