I love Valentines Day! I know people say Valentines Day is a commercial holiday, it means more when that special person shows you they love you on random days and I agree. But let’s face it, we all get busy with life and sometimes showing that person we love them isn’t as high up on the priority list as it should be. I think of Valentines Day as a reminder to do something special for the ones you love. And who doesn’t love a day full of flowers, candy and love notes?? It brings out the hopeless romantic in me!
I have to confess, I went a little overboard this year with Valentines for the kids at Tyler’s daycare but this is the first year he gets excited about stuff like that! I had so much fun doing it! Tyler is going to freak out when he sees the large stuffed minion he is getting. Good thing we are giving the kids their valentines tonight since we don’t have Aaron tomorrow because I would probably give in and give it to him early.
I had gotten Jim a few little things and his yearly big bag full of candy but I was trying to think of something special to do this year. I saw on Pinterest (what did we do before pinterest) a mason jar titled “Reasons I love you”, in it was candy and cut out hearts with the reasons written on them. I set out to do 50 reasons but ended up with 61. I wrote 50 on the original paper but when I was writing them on the hearts I kept thinking of more. I love this because writing them was like a reminder to myself of all the reasons I love him. I am shocked I actually did this because I am usually a Pinterest pinner and hardly ever a Pinterest doer. It turned out cute!
If everything goes well we should actually get to go out and celebrate this Valentines Day. We haven’t had a date night in a while and we are itching to get out kid free. I love our date nights, we don’t get enough of them.
Whether you love Valentines Day or not, I hope you have a FABULOUS Valentines Day!
