Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone

Now I never really have celebrated Valentine’s Day in the past, honestly you won’t find me getting all crazy about receiving some expensive gift, but I can see that this day could be a wonderful day to simply celebrate the love you have for that special someone in your life. I created Valentine’s Day cards for my kids and my boyfriend on Treat.com this year and can not wait to hand them their cards today!

Happy Valentine's Day

I think the best gifts for any holiday are those that come from the heart, so today I wanted to share with you all some simple, low or no costs ideas for a Valentine’s Day gift for that sweetie in your life:

  • Home Made Dinner In – get out all of those cooking supplies and recipe books. Find a meal set for a king or queen and cook that loved one the most amazing meal set by candle light if you wish at home in your own dining room.
  • Make a Crafty Fun Valentine’s Day Card – Don’t have the money to go spend on a card? Have construction paper and copy paper (or printer paper)? Well then create a cute red construction paper card shape, cute a piece of copy paper into the shape of a heart, attached it to the front of the card and right a cute little phrase on it. Inside you can use Google Search to find cute poems or sayings {if you can’t come up with a crafty poem of your own} and write it on the inside of the card with love from you.
  • Clean the House with the Kids – Sometimes it’s the small things that count the most, enlist yourself and/or your kids to give that other parent in the household a day and night off from having to do anything. Take complete control of the household from chores to cooking and make her/him feel like they are having a total vacation day.

Valentine’s Day to me is simply a day to remember the love you have for those you are blessed to have in your life, there is no need for spending crazy amounts of money if that’s not in your budget. Just simply take today to let that special someone know how much you love them.

Switching Blogs Takes Page Rank

Google, Inc.

One of the things I worried about when deciding to change my blog name was my google page rank – which was 3 in just a few short months of blogging at Writings of a WAHM. I am determined to get my rank back up super fast, but know it takes time for Google to index my website.

I must admit I do not like that my PR went from 3 to N/A, but since I got a PR of 3 in just a few short months I know I can do the same here. I have so many supportive friends, and have learned so much in the little time I have been blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot more to learn, but I am taking it in fast and enjoy learning a new SEO and blogging tip each day.

The main reason behind switching blog names was that the whole “Writings of a WAHM” was boring – it gave me the idea of a mom who is going to either a) sell you something or b) write about her journeys as a WAHM {work at home mom}. Neither of which applied to my writing nor my blog.

Although I am a mom, and I do have my own virtual assistant business, I am here to write, help others, tell you which products I just have to have, which products you just have to have, and even have a giveaway from time to time. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was 12 years old, I still have my journal pad I wrote poems on in school.

Writing is what keeps my mind clear, it helps me focus. If I am having a bad day, I write. If the kids are being crazy or even just silly, I write. If my hubby is working long hours and I am lonely, I write.

I hope you will continue to read my blog posts here at Happily Blended, because they will be optimistic, supportive and occasionally silly with mild scarism. Happily Blended is not only the new name for my blog – it’s who I am as a mom, a sister, a daughter and a wife. I am a little bit of everything – a simply happy blend.
