- It combines all of my favorite things (pink, candy, chocolate, flowers...and my silly, child-like affinity for plush toys - which I do refrain from indulging in, thanks).
- It celebrates love: not just romantic love, but love for your girlfriends, your parents, your siblings, and Christ's love for us.
- It's a good excuse to send a single friend an "I love you and you are amazing" snail-mail card.
- And for those who are coupled up, it's an excuse to have a date night!

Here's what we've got going on in our home this month to celebrate the day of love!
