All you need is love …


Happy Valentine’s Day! How can you not have fun with a holiday that involves crafts with colorful paper, safety scissors, glue sticks, glitter, and lace?

Well, I found out this year as we bought our cards, but Connor still painstakingly chose and filled out each one with tremendous affection for the recipients. Ona sort of scribbled on a few and then went off to be distracted by a shiny object in the other room. I felt a bit like a slacker in the creativity department, especially when we received some really nice handmade cards from friends, but we all enjoyed the day just the same.

Next year maybe I’ll be more ambitious … but I’ll probably just Ooh and Aah over the amazing ideas on Pinterest and then hit the dollar store again.

But we did do cards, so that’s an accomplishment in itself! It always feels more like Valentine’s Day when cards are involved. And lots of chocolate, of course. I plan to pick a red wine with dinner, as well, so color me festive. Hope you all also found the perfect way to celebrate for You!

And mad, mad, mad, mad love from our home to yours!

    Ooh, what more do you really need than dollar-store valentines and kids to make them interesting, topped off by red wine? Happy Valentine’s Day! So what color wine are you planning on for St. Patrick’s day?

      Ha! Totally, thanks, Laurel!
      St. Paddy’s always calls for a green Guinness (and The Pogues), in my book …
