thankful thursday {valentine edition}

Seeing as Valentine's Day is only 4 short days away, I thought we could sprinkle this week's Thankful Thursday with a little extra love. Feel free to join in with the linky list below... and don't feel pressured to be all mushy-gushy... it is your Thankful Thursday after all... you can be thankful for whatever you want.

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) Conversation hearts. I mean who doesn't love these things? Even if you get a box of really old stale candy... you can at least spell out some pretty clever messages. Last year Lance pulled through with a box... what can I say, the man knows what I like.

2) Valentine care packages. You all know how much I adore mail... and even more so, care packages... well, a care package with a holiday theme?? Melt my heart. And I just happened to get a fabulous box bursting at the seams with red and pink and overflowing with candy and pointless Valentine-inspired gifts. I love it. And I knew exactly who it was from the moment I saw the sticker-covered-box.

3) My Valentine. Well... obviously. I am thankful for the love he shows me everyday... not just on Valentine's day. He is kind. He is thoughtful. He is romantic. He is everything I could have ever asked for... and he is mine.

So... here's how Thankful Thursday works...

:: Write up a little post about what you are thankful for. I always pick 3 things... (but that's just me, and how I started TT on the very first post). You can pick how ever many you want. I mean, I'm not the Thankful Nazi or anything.

:: Remember the simple things. This Thankful Thursday is yours... and you can be thankful for whatever you want... but what I love about doing this every week is that it forces me to really think about the simple pleasures in life... both big and small.

:: Add your awesomeness to the Thankful Thursday linky list below. Please be sure to add your actual Thankful Thursday post... not just a link to your blog home page.

:: Tell your friends. Link back to this blog and invite your other bloggy friends to join in Thankful Thursday. If this works out and you guys want to do this again and again... I will work on getting some type of Thankful Thursday button... promise.

:: Be sure to visit some of the other blogs on the list. Share the love. It's always to encouraging to read what everyone else is thankful for.

:: Be thankful.
