I’m hoping wherever you are you are having a wonderful, warm and happy “love love love” day. (That’s what my boys still call this day in our house. The whole concept of Valentine’s Day is a little more difficult to explain. Hearts are easy)
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays and I have really great memories of this day from when I was little. My mom and dad used to surprise my sister and I with little treats in our room on Valentine’s Day. We woke up to things like a necklace and some chocolates and I remember one year it was some perfume in a rose that I totally treasured because it made me feel “grown-up” and special. And any holiday that celebrates chocolate is the type of holiday I love.
And now I’m definitely trying to keep this morning tradition with my guys even though we’re a little far away from home this holiday. (Thank you so much mom and dad for starting this tradition! We’re so lucky to have you both!)
