For our first Valentine’s Day, my (now) husband went above and beyond to make me a gift. He spent hours making a mixed CD for me and it had some of the best, most unexpected songs on it.
My favorite from the CD? “Being Around” by the Lemonheads.
Kenny and I had a strange relationship early on. And it’s been a long time since I listened to that CD. (Seeing how my CD player in my car is on the fritz, I really need to back the CD up onto my iPod.)
Today I was driving home and I heard John Legend’s song “All of Me” and just thought it would be the PERFECT song for a couple. Had this song been out 7 years ago, I would have chosen it for our first dance at our wedding.
It’s such a great song for Valentine’s Day.
I have high(er) hopes for Valentine’s Day this year. I’m hoping to complete some handmade cards before Friday and spend the evening with the husband and the toddler. We won’t be going out Friday night, since the husband has to work (at school!) on Saturday.
With the weather being so sketchy and me just being lazy, I’m thinking of sending a few e-cards this Valentine’s Day. I haven’t sent a proper e-card in several years (nor have I received one) and I used to think they were really cute and could be pretty funny. Blue Mountain has a great selection of Valentine’s e-cards ranging from romantic to funny and even some printable cards.
(My favorite so far is the dog singing the “That’s Amore” song. Seriously? It’s going to be sent to a few people.)
Do you send e-cards? Are you considering it this Valentine’s Day? If you’re hanging out on this snow day, head over and pick out a card or two to send Friday – and make someone smile!

Do you have any mixed CDs lying around? What is/was your favorite song from a mixed album? (Could be a mixed tape, as well. Those were super fun, too.)
