Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day, I wanted to do something different.

So I bought some erasers,
{pardon my photography skills} 

some lollipops,

some chocolate,

 some stickers

some candy,

printed a little message,

 wrote cards,

 and put them all in little bags.

 Then I went around our neighborhood and dropped them in my neighbors' mailboxes.

And you know what? I discovered that once in a while it's good to turn the tables. It's good to give instead of receive. I spent some of my own money and a lot of my time for people I don't know very well, and I know I won't receive credit for it. But today is a day that celebrates love, and part of love is doing nice things for people, even if it requires a lot of work on your part and even if you get nothing in return. So I encourage you to do just that. Do something nice for someone and don't expect anything back. I promise you, it'll be absolutely worth it. :)


  1. That's so creative and sweet! And yes, love is more about giving than receiving. I'm certain you made someone's day by doing that wonderful gift giving.

    By the way, I can't help but admire your handwriting skills. It's like, perfect!

  2. That's such a awesome idea! The cards you made are amazing! x

  3. Wow! Your mentality is like always good towards other people!

    [X] Inspiring ^_^

    1. Oh, trust me, I'm not like this ALL the time. I have my bad judge-y moments too. xD But thank you!

  4. How sweet!!! This is a darling idea! And yes, 'tis always better to give rather than to receive. ;)

  5. I wish I was one of those neighbors! I want to do this.


Thank you so, so much for your encouraging words! I hope your day is as awesome as you are. c:
