When I was little, Valentine’s Day was one of my favorite holidays. I can still remember the paper mailboxes we made in class and the thrill of going through all of my Valentine’s Day cards for days after. Then when we got older, my friends and I would compare our cards trying to decide if the boys we had crushes on picked special cards out just for us. Isn’t it funny the memories that stick with us through the years? I can’t remember what I did yesterday, but I sure do remember that paper mailbox…LOL. Last year I celebrated “Galentine’s Day” with my bloggy bestie Shanna. This year I’m celebrating with one of my IRL besties and surprising her with this JTV turquoise necklace. I’ve always loved turquoise (as evidenced by this Instagram) and now I get to share my love of the stone with her and YOU guys. One lucky reader will win this exact same necklace!

    I love turquoise!~! I especially love it in the summer! looks great on me with a tan πŸ™‚ I think blondes look good in turquoise-
    I had no real plans for valentines- I really don’t ‘like’ valentine’s day…. as I have gotten older and lost friends due to death and moving I have kind of stopped looking forward to birthdays and valentine’s day, etc because they just make me sad.
    I mean- it’s just a normal day. too many people make it out to be this ‘great thing’, which I am sure it could be. But maybe I just have bad memories associated with it. idk…. I did have a nice day- I hope you did too—- we all went to the mall, went window shopping and tried to find something I would want but I couldn’t decide, and then we took my 3 year old to the arcade, and I made dinner- we all ate together. I put her to bed and we snuggled and watched the walking dead…. it was a good day. oh and he surprised me and got me a box of nice chocolates and a card. — which I was ‘mad’ at him because I told him don’ get me anything because all I did was make him a card with our daughter. (i don’t drive because I owe a really high excise tax from like 4 years ago- so I didn’t have time or go anywhere without him to get him a card or anything since he drives me everywhere for now until i can pay it)….so that was our day. hope you had a great day!
