What Makes February Special?


February definitely holds special meanings for many people.
Not only is it the day we celebrate love and our loved ones.
But some of us celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and of course Valentine's Day.
For some of us we re-evaluate our New Year's Resolutions
 and make changes and or abandon them completely.  
For some, the second month of the year is a great reason 
to wear red, pink and or a combination of the two.
We celebrate Black History Month in our schools and communities although some celebrate all year.
We get to indulge in chocolate, candy and anything that has lots and lots of sugar.
Some of us get reacquainted with how to spell February...not Febuary 
(as i have done many times before).

For Team Pancakes...February is magical for one reason and one reason alone...
it is the month we met and our lives were changed forever!

Journal Entry from Feb. 25, 2008 @ 10:26AM (yes i wrote times on my journal entry):
"i met a guy last week and i must say i am smitten.  Spoke to him for about 3.5 hours closer to 4 hours and the whole entire time we were laughing and just having a good time. 
 More about him later."

Journal Entry March 1, 2001 @ 9:10pm
"...i do believe someteims making 
one decision can change your life 
for the better and i am hoping that this is it...
that meeting of a lifetime."

Team Pancakes celebrates 4 years together as a couple!
February is definitely an awesome month!

Question of the Day:
Now what about you, what makes this month special to you?


Alida said... the journal entries!!

February is special to me because our only daughter and first child was stillborn this month. She may not have ever taken a breath on this earth but she changed my life forever. And I am grateful.

LOVE it! So touching! You've inspired me to pull out my journals. I LOVE February because it is my birth month! I was born on February 28, 79! This year it is also special to me because I will be hosting my first little fabulous clothing swap. I am so super excited about that!

With Class & Sass,

I guess I would have to get a bit sappy to answer this question. I never liked V-Day, I never had a reason not to, I just thought you should show love to others everyday, and not just a day deem by Hallmark. Until I met my husband, who totally revamped my thinking, who shows me love everyday, and is the most simple, but demonstrative on Valentines Day...awwwwwww lol

LV said...

Great post! For me February gives me an excuse to eat chcoolate, I get to celebrate my history and it marks the one year anniversary of my blog.

Heather said...

Happy anniversary, Team Pancakes! I think it's wonderful to take the time to remember and celebrate the month you met. I'm looking forward to a great February filled with love and fun, just like I try to do every month and every day!

Bravoe Runway said...

Oh wow, I cannot believe how detailed you are in your journaling! I am not like that at all. I'm not really sure if there is anything special that Feb brings...does groundhog day count?

Monique said...

This is an extremely special month for you two! Happy 4 year anniversary! So great you documented your feelings. This month is special for me because it marks the halfway point to my first year of teaching. After being out of the classroom for many years.

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

February is Rolex's favorite month! Because it's the month we met and fell in love too!
Tomorrow is our second anniversary of our first date (which is also the first day we met).
Such a wonderfully romantic time of the year! :)

Lisa C said...

Lovely to share your journal entries with us, it makes you more real - thank you.
I too write the time and date of my entry. Today I was showing my children a few entries in my journal and my 7 year old was fascinated and wants to start hers now.
Ha! I spelled February without the "r" for years too...oops ;-)
February is special to me because my daughter Birthday is on the 11th and she'll be turning 10!
My Dad's Birthday is on the 20th and he'll be turning 74, wow!
My Anniversary is on the 26th and it will be our 13th year of marriage!!!

Love the journal snippets! I've been journaling for 24 years and it's so cool to go back in time and see how things have evolved. February's not a special month for us and we're not big on Valentine's Day but it is our first month in our new apartment so we'll be busy making it comfy and cozy!
