So… first things first.
It is Saturday.
You’re not going crazy… though it’s more than likely that I am.
But, for a number of reasons, some of which were completely out of my control, and some of which that had been in my control, but escaped, I decided to postpone My Week on Wednesday until Saturday.
To tell the truth, if I had had any sense at all, I would have skipped this week all together, and just picked it up next Wednesday.
But I wanted to write about Valentines. And, though I’m all about last minute things… that was cutting it a little too fine. I mean, Valentine’s Day is already only a week away!
So I gathered up a bunch of really awesome Valentine’s Day posts from myself, my friends over at the Homestead Bloggers Network, and some of my other favorite bloggers.
