dil·i·gence:careful and persistent work or effort

Proverbs 13: 4 The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.

I've been spending some time making sure our home is extra lovely.
I strung together some construction paper hearts using twine.
And, I put out our two little love birds.
 And, other than that, I kept our Valentine's Day mantle very simple.
Because, after Christmas, I was craving some beautiful but simple decorations.
I used to dislike Valentine's Day, but you know what?  I don't anymore.  It's a day for love, not a day for lovers.  And, I have so much love in my life to celebrate!
And, now I'll leave you with a movie quote:

"If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

Can you name that movie?




  1. What a sweet and simple mantle. Very pretty without being over the top. Now I will say I am NOT a big movie buff..but is it from Love Actually? xo Diana

  2. :) You've got it, Diana! I'm so not a movie buff either, but I do love that quote.

  3. Way to go Diana! And I agree, your mantel is sweet Emily! I love the thought that Valentine's Day is about all kinds of love. And love is actually all around. Sometimes we're just too busy to appreciate it!
