Cartoon hearts and glitter hugs for all of you on this most shiny and chocolate covered holiday. We have 18 posts on deck behind this one ready to keep you entertained and enlightened all day and well into the night (and beyond, with the second shift open thread at 10 p.m. EST).
Today’s LTP has two options, one for the wordy and one for the arty. It’s not Valentine’s Day without a crafty project with doilies and foil, even virtual versions.
Option #1: Valentine’s Day can easily turn into an effort to make big, romantic gestures, but I’ve found it’s the little things that end up being more romantic to me. The lover who cleans the snow off your car or remembers that half banana/half strawberry shakes from Steak & Shake are your favorite gets more points in my book than the lover who writes sonnets and makes a BFD about the holiday. What are some of the little romantic gestures you’ve done or had done for you by a special someone?
Option #2: Make a Valentine with Polyvore and put the link in the comments, I’ll edit them into the post in between my other editorly duties today.
