Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you have a great day today. Not just because it is Valentine's Day, but because I want you all to have a happy day. I know in the past Valentine's Day has weighed on me whether I had a significant other or not. I feel like the day has Hallmark written all over it and we should celebrate our loved ones everyday.

That sentiment has changed a bit over time as I have had children. I shower them with love everyday, but I get them a little something to make their day more special. We didn't go overboard this year and really never do.

The girls are receiving a Valentine's card, a Valentine Pez dispenser and Pez plus a book each (this one and this one). Simple and sweet. I got Rory a card and something, but I can't share it until later since he reads here.

And we plan to get take-out or cook at home.

What are your Valentine's Day plans?


  1. Your plans sound pretty much just like ours! The kids always get a card and something small and we just cook dinner at home. Just the way I like it!

  2. I'm all about take out on Valentine's Day too - no cooking for this gal on a day of love :) Because I DEFINITELY dont LOVE to cook ;) haha

  3. Happy Valentine's Day to y'all! We are grilling out at home with the boys. I got them nothing, I am so mean, hee hee. We are going to have a candlelight dinner at home Sunday night when they are with their mom.

  4. Thank you! Happy Valentine's Day to you!

  5. I surprised my boys with donuts and a little gift of chocolate then we had a family dinner in with a special dessert and watched a few family TV shows together. Thanks for sharing with us at Encouraging Hearts and home. Pinned.

  6. Happy Valentine's Day! No big plans here, it's just nice having my husband home back from the field. :)
