Something about Valentine's day makes me very giddy and nostalgic. I remember when I was a little girl, my Dad would always give my mother and I flowers every year. Hers was usually a bouquet of fragrant red roses and mine were typically pink carnations. I remember making homemade valentines to give out to family and the class parties back in grade school. I love the concept of the day, a celebrations of Love...so sweet!
Of course, every holiday is more fun when kids are involved. Last year, I decorated the mantle with felt hearts, candles and little cupids (all of which seem to have disappeared during the move). I bought the boys adorable valentines day pajamas and we ate finger foods in front of the fireplace and had "Cupid Floats" (vanilla ice cream, strawberry soda and heat sprinkles) for dessert.
While I still search for the elusive Valentines Day decorations, I spruced up the chalk board in Valentines day fashion with lyrics to one of my favorite songs
Valentines Day is on a Friday this year, so of course the pressure is on to create something extra special! I'm really digging the idea of creating a fort in the living room and making s'mores in the fireplace!
I found this on Pinterest, couldn't find the original source, but it looks like it would be so much fun! Definitely something both the kids and the adults would enjoy!
Here is hoping the kids go to bed at a decent time so the hubs and I can enjoy a romantic evening!
