THE SCOOP #312- Get the best of your favorite blogs all in one place.Are you a Valentine gal? Do you love the cards and hearts and flowers and love-is-in-the-air of Valentine’s Day?

BUT that being said… I want to let you know how crazy I am about you!!!! And I am so so blessed by your friendship! I HEART you (too sappy? I thought so!)!

    I say, “why not use the little ‘Holidays and Special days to create more fun in life…it doesn’t have to be something really expensive. Especially if you have grandkids close by..but it would be nice, even with your mate.I’m not very good at it but like the idea of it….. Also, the boot scene could be done as a Christmas decoration on your porch with fake snow, [and that could be faked, I don’t know]
