Love Week 2012

I am celebrating Valentine’s Day all week long on Organically Mo! 

It’s funny – I HATE the commercialism of Valentine’s Day when it comes to making males feel like dog poop if they don’t send their significant other 20 dozen roses or a diamond necklace the size of Texas.  But I LOVE the thought of spoiling other people, mainly kids.

When I was younger, I knew that I would wake up on Valentine’s Day morning, go to the kitchen and find a card & gift from my parents at my place on the dining table.  Isn’t that awesome?  I felt so loved!  I think they did that for me until I moved out about 10 years ago! 

And who can forget exchanging Valentine’s with classmates and gifts with friends?  That was the BEST!

This year, I decided to recreate a few Red Velvet recipes I have found on other blogs, so stay tuned for those.  I will also be talking about a few of my favorite “love” related things throughout the week.

Then we can all move on and dream about the green beer we get to drink on St. Patrick’s Day!


  1. I miss the days of exchanging cards and candies at school! The past few years I took off from work b/c I hate Valentines Day that much. Unfortunately I start a new job tomorrow so I really dont have the choice. Bah humbug Valentines Day!

  2. sounds like a plan, i'm in! My husband and I always doing something together rather than buy each other things for a day that is so dramatic. We'll make our favorite dinner or this year we bought tickets to an event we both want to go to. It's kind of like a wedding gift or a couples day of celebration rather than "wahhhh...these aren't roses you moron!!! and Russell Stover? It's called Godiva..." can't wait for the read1

  3. Awwww! My parents use to give us Valentine's gifts too! I was always so excited for it. My dad still sends us little gifts every year - last year we got mugs with pictures of our family all over them.

    Oh and seriously will be making the red velvet recipes - I go weak in the knees for red velvet. ;) Happy Valentine's Day!!
