The Greatest Month

Happy last day of January!

So I really love February. You are probably wondering why because it seems like most people hate on February. I know it is cold, weird with an additional day every 4 years, and includes a Hallmark Holiday which most people also do not like. You see, I actually like the month for two of those reasons.

Valentine’s Day + Short Month + My birthday {every 4 years} = BEST MONTH EVER.

I have always really liked Valentine’s Day. I know it is kind of a lame Holiday compared to Christmas or Easter, but to me, it is just sweet. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you can still love people. To me, Valentine’s Day is a great chance to wear some pink or red, decorate cookies, and celebrate those around you and their meaning in your life.

With it being a short month, whether with 28 or 29 days, that means one month closer to it being warm outside which we can all appreciate. It always seems to be cold and overcast which is a slight bummer, but at least the month always flies by. Just think warm thoughts to get you through.

And then of course there is my “weird” birthday. Yes, I was born on that strange day called Leap Year. My mom just couldn’t hold me in 8 more minutes so that I could say I was born on the normal day of March 1st. A day that would exist every single year.

I am thankful for my birthday. It gives me a guaranteed response when professors ask the class to “describe one unique thing about yourself.” It also allows me to celebrate my birthday whenever I want which is kinda fun. Every 4 years I get to have a really big, usually themed party as if I was really a 4, 5, or 6-year old. I’ve done Barney, Hannah Montana, and Dora. Can’t wait to see what the big 7 will bring in 3 years!

The Big 5!

Celebrated the Big 6, Dora style!

As you can imagine, I am a BIG fan of blogs and Pinterest. I enjoy stealing other people’s creative ideas for DIY projects, recipes etc. and trying to recreate them. Or their ideas make me think of something innovative that I can create. I wanted to share a few things that I have seen lately which made me think of February {mainly V-Day}. Hope you enjoy!

There you have it. I could go on for a very long time because this is fun and there are so many cute things out there. As you can tell, I really like pink. Never really been a fan of red to be honest. But whatever floats your boat!

I hope you have a great weekend & don’t forget to spread your love every single day.

Let your light shine!
