all that cliche stuff

Happy Valentines Day! This is a holiday that's reviled by some and LOVED by others. I'm somewhere in the middle, which makes it okay to celebrate it, or not.

Today we're going to school with Chloe to help hand out her valentines to her classmates. I'm excited about it because she is SO excited about it. I remember distinctly handing out valentines and getting them at my desk in elementary school. We always decorated a tissue box and waited to see what kind of cool Valentines we would get from our friends and classmates. Luckily my daughter is still too young to care about which Valentines she might get from which boys, thank goodness. Heaven help me when that day comes. I'm going to be a mess.

I hope you either celebrate the heck out of this day (chocolate, flowers, wine, etc.) or ignore all those silly things and have a wonderful day despite all of that cliche stuff!

FYI, today I finally got a 2016 photo book put together. Shutterfly is my go-to website for photo books. Here is a referral code (here) if you are interested in making your own!

There is no better way to say 'I love you' than with a cute little flowering plant in a handsome little pot. Here is some Valentines Day inspiration from some awesome small businesses on Etsy.

One of the most loved and most hated holidays is coming up next week!  I loved Valentines Day as a kid because my mom would always buy us a new shirt and we'd get a king size candy bar at breakfast.  Chocolate and clothing, no wonder those are still some of my favorite things!

As I got older Valentines Day became much more about what boy I liked and whether I'd get flowers or not.  I hope that we teach our daughter that Valentines Day is about love from her family first and she can worry about all that grown up stuff later.  Or maybe she'll be smarter and more mature than I and never worry about silly boys and whether they remember flowers or not.

I hope you celebrate your loved ones and enjoy the holiday your own special way.
