Happy Love Day!

When I was in college, I joined a sorority.  On bid day after running to join my new sorority, a sister (Barrett) grab my hand and we ran all the way back to the sorority dorm, up four floors to the top floor and into the chapter room.  I have no idea how....but we beat the entire chapter back and for a few seconds we were the only ones in the room.  I remembered did little old me got into the top sorority on our campus??  After the chapter sang to us and celebrated with ice cream cake for ONLY the new members (our tradition), we met with our pledge mom and then went back to our dorms to change and go out to dinner.  To my surprise when I went back, this is what I found on my dorm room door.

It may not seem like much, but it was a wonderful surprise and I still remember seeing it for the first time and all the excitement of that day.  And I knew they loved me and that day I was where I belonged.

The other day, I saw this post on Kiss My List blog and remembering how special I felt getting my door decorated that day in college; I decided to do this for the girls.  So, I cut out a few hearts, used some doily's I had laying around and picked up some Valentine's banners at the dollar store.  I put them to bed a little early and I stayed up a little late....and this was their doors when I was done.

The next morning, I got them up a little early and it was so fun to see their surprise and excitement.

For some reason, MK keeps calling today 'Happy Love Day', so we've been using that around here.

 So, today (and everyday) tell someone you love them, smile at the checkout girl, say THANK YOU, tell someone you don't know to have a great day, send someone a little card or note, open the door for a stranger and never know it just might really make someone's day!

Happy Love Day - 2013!!
