... for several reasons. But for one main reason. VALENTINE'S DAY. And I know what you're thinking. It was created by the mass marketers of the world as a scam to create yet another holiday where the honest civilians of the world get suckered into buying more overpriced unnecessary merchandise. But guess what? I'm a marketer. And an admirer of love. And a glass-half-full type of chick. So I will continue to celebrate every February. And you will like it. LOL.
So being the ever-ready proactive girl that I am. Joe & I have already decided on a VDAY gift this year to each other. We're sharing it. It's a new-to-us buffet hutch. You see, Joe & I were gifted his godmother's china, crystal, and silver. And I needed a VERY SPECIAL place to display everything. So we bought this piece of furniture. Sanded it for a solid 6 hours one day. And then lovingly put two coats of fresh paint on it. Now it is the center of attention in our lil' dining nook. As it should be. It's definitely my new fave thing in our house. It'll be hard to top this one.
