It’s mid-February, so you know what that means: St. Valentine’s Day! We hope yours is a great one, full of happiness and love—however you choose to celebrate and whoever you choose to celebrate with!

While it is nice that there’s one day every year set aside specifically for declarations of love, doesn’t it seem like that should be every day? To quote Burt Bacharach, what the world needs now is love, sweet love—it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of. So why only celebrate it once a year?

Just two of the many, many homemade Valentine's Day cards we've made for each other over the years.

Sara and I do our best to make every day like Valentine’s Day. Now, we don’t send each other flowers every day, or go out to dinner at fancy restaurants every night, or feast on chocolates with questionable fillings all year long. But, we do tell each other how much we love each other and appreciate each other every day, and we do what we can to make every day a little bit more special, in one way or another.

Love is the best thing in the world, especially when you’ve got someone who loves you back to share it with. If you really, truly love someone, let them know! Don’t wait until February 14th—love is always in season.

We have lots of love to go around, and hopefully, by the next time Valentine’s rolls around, we’ll have a little one to share all that love with. And maybe you can help! If you or someone you know is thinking of making an adoption plan, please consider the Rostadoption!
