Day One- Introduction & Giveaway

Hello Ladies,

I want to welcome you all to my first series. Almost every where I turn in the blogging world there is some series going to help "strengthen your marriage"....but I have not seen anything for us none married people. You might think I am not single because I have a boyfriend. You are right but this will be my first Valentines to actually be with him. The last two times we were quite a few miles apart. ☺So I know how it is to watch all the couples around you and you sit there alone.

Valentines day is not about boyfriends, girlfriends and romance it is about showing extra love to the people close to us, the people we love and we all have someone like that! Valentines day is about thinking of others. The days ahead of us will include ideas of showing love to others, crafting something for valentines day and sometimes just doing something different. I will have a link up on Thursday the 7th and 14th where you can tell me about your accomplishments.

There will be a GIVEAWAY at the end of this series: 
different German teas wrapped in a real vintage hankie and a bar of German Milka chocolate.


Tomorrow we will be doing a craft....hope to see you here!

    1. Hahahaha.....suddenly you are happy to be single. :D I'm excited about it too!

  6. Thank you for telling me about your giveaway. =)

  7. Oops... I entered your giveaway before I read your condition. I just saw Milka chocolate and so I entered. I miss Milka so much! I can get it here in a German store but the prices are way over the top! I probably won't go out with my DH for a date since we have a little one but we'd sure love to enjoy a Milka chocolate on the sofa ;-) not sure if I qualify though..



    1. Hehehe...I'll let you stay in if you would just please follow me on Google Friend Connect. Thank you!

      And I would love to see you here more often! You are German too, right?


    2. I'm following you on G+ now. Thanks for letting me in the giveaway.

      Yes, I am German. Living in Beautiful British Columbia (Canada) though since about 5 1/2 years (with an 8 months "trip" back to Germany).

      I will definitely be back to read more from you.
