I’ve never really cared that much about Valentine’s Day. I will admit that after my first husband passed away, it was really hard to see all the hype around Valentine’s Day. It was a BIG reminder of all that I lost when I lost him. But, really, I was reminded of that almost every day.
Enter in my great friends!! They always seemed to have something planned whether it was a Saturday morning run, a dinner out or a trip to the beach!! I always felt loved and special because of my friends. That’s why I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite things. If you have a special friend (especially one who is alone for Valentine’s Day), you might want to send them a gift! All of these gifts can be found on Amazon so it isn’t too late to order!!

First, my all-time favorite… laundry soap. This laundry soap is like no other!! If you love Tyler candles, you will love this. I usually just use it on my sheets and towels. If I’m sure I don’t have any of Dr. T’s laundry in with mine, I’ll even wash my workout clothes in it!! It smells so good!!
|This soap can be purchased HERE or most places that sell Tyler Candles.|
This Magnolia lotion is my favorite scent right now. It is clean and crisp!!
|It can be found HERE.|
I also love flowers!! I found these peonies last year and bought them. I’m surprised at how real they look!!
|I love these because these are 2 bouquets for about $16.00. They are tied at the stems- ready to use!!|
They can be found HERE.
I can’t let Valentine’s Day go by without reminding you of this precious book!! I met Matt when he came to my school district for a school visit when I was a librarian. We met up with him when I took my daughter to NYC that summer. He met us for dinner. Matt is the kind of person that makes you feel like you are a dear friend even though you’ve just met. It has been a joy to see him be acknowledged for his achievements (His book Last Stop On Market Street won the Newbery in 2016- WON, not an honor book, but the winner) Plus, I just think he is a really great guy. This little book is BIG with meaning!! I just love it!!

These are just a few of my favorite things. How about you, do you get a special friend, one of your Tribe, a special gift? I usually don’t, but I think the least I can do is let them know that I love them on that special day!!! Boy, do I love them!!!
