I have to be 100% real with y’all we aren’t really big Valentines Day people. Of all the holidays it is definitely at the bottom of my favorite list. Typical traditional Valentines things just don’t work for me and I don’t buy into “Hallmark” holidays. Maybe I’m complicated or overly frugal, probably a combination of both. Whatever it is I would be completely fine with just skipping Valentines Day.
But we don’t.
Sure I may not be much for the mushy valentines romance but who’s to say they aren’t or won’t be? I want my girls to grow up in a home where love is shown in a way that speaks to the heart of others.
After all isn’t that what Valentines day should really be about?
So we celebrate love, we celebrate loving others and we remember the one who loves us most.
Love the wreath? Katie from Sweet Little Ones also made one a few years back and has a great tutorial on how to put one together!
We craft and work on art projects.
Here are a few I have my eyes on.
We spend time together and show love for others.
Every day I have been adding a heart to the girls doors and writing something I love about them on it. Here is a sneak peek at Emily’s
I also have planned a couple individual date nights with the girls. It is so fun taking them out alone and spending one on one time with them.
And of course sending Valentines to spread the love to others.
Intentional time, acknowledging love and making things together…
maybe Valentines Day isn’t so bad after all.
