Good Idea!

A Day Late And 44 Cents Short

I tooooooooootally meant to do this post in time for you to take advantage of it with Valentine’s Day cards! Oops! Oh well – you can take this info and put it to good use with your wedding/shower invitations.

There are cities all over with great love-themed names.  It’s easy to have your mail postmarked from them – just address and stamp your mail like normal, put it all in one big envelope and send it to:

Remailing (or ‘Valentine Remailing’ if you do this next year)
City, State, Zip

Here are some of my favorites:

Bliss, ID 83314
Bridal Veil, OR 97010
Heart Butte, MT 59448
Lovejoy, GA 30250
Loveland, CO 80538
Lovely, KY 41231
Loving, TX 76460
Romance, AR 72136
Romeo, CO 81148
Sugar City, ID 83448
Valentine, NE 69201

And my Number One Favorite is…..Loveville, MD 20656. Because it’s near me!  Would you have your invitations remailed from somewhere romantic-sounding?

Hey That’s A Good Idea!

Don’t Etsy creators/artists/designers continue to amaze you all the time? This is, of course, assuming you’re as addicted to the site as I am. (You are, right?)

Today I was shopping looking for inspiration and came across this little piece of brilliance – a Love Life Calendar! This would make a great wedding gift, Valentine’s gift, or just as a tool to promote a continued, healthy romance in your own life. 

There are four relationship components listed and assigned to a quarter section of a heart {as shown in the 2nd photo}. Each day you color in the corresponding pieces for those aspects you achieved. The object, obviously, is to see lots of red!

Some couples might think this is cheesy but just as we should write down our personal goals as a sort of road map, we should also pay close attention to our relationships.  It’s no secret that marriage is work…but it can be fun work. 🙂
