A Love Letter: The Best Valentine's Day Gift

What are you hoping your honey will get you for Valentine's Day?

Single Mom Seeking: Tell the truth: If you could receive ONE of the following for Valentine's Day, which would you choose?

A. A pair of moonstone earrings
B. Leopard print lingerie with a garter belt
C. A letter written by someone who adores you, detailing everything this person loves about you
D. Dark chocolate truffles

I'd go for the love letter. Would you?

The Love Letter Squad (Janet Gallin and Tresa Eyres) recently invited me to their workshop, "Write a Letter ... Change a Life." (Note: The number of men in attendance blew me away. Go, guys!)

And I'm inspired.

"A love letter is the most intimate gift you can give, because no one can duplicate it,"says Janet.

As much I love chocolate and lingerie, nothing compares to receiving a handwritten letter just for ME. Don't you agree?

If you're still following me, here are some tips about how you might start writing one yourself.

First, remember that a love letter does NOT have to be romantic. You can express appreciation to a parent, child, friend, teacher, public figure -- even someone in your life who needs an apology or forgiveness. And who says you can't write a love letter to YOURSELF?

Start by writing down one good memory you have of this person ("I remember when...").

Add something that makes you proud of this person.

Include some physical attributes you admire.

Be honest and authentic, and don't forget to write it in your own handwriting on smudge-free paper (or in a card).

All right: Ready, set, go....

Lucky for me, I stumbled upon this site! I am trying to find the ideal place for my honeymoon this October. Were narrowing in on Carneros or Hotel Healdsburg. A preference between the two hotels/areas?

San Diego State has recently become involved with Greek Intervarsity which is a way for all Greeks to come and explore faith together. Needless to say, my fraternity is the reason I have developed such an amazing relationship with God for I have brothers who will guide myself and each to live diligently and faithfully as beseech the day.
