our Valentine's day


The kids have taken their valentines to school today.  Together we made flowers of painted paper grocery bags and tootsie pops.  All addressed to their classmates, their names scrawled out in that sweet little guy handwriting. 


They'll come home to some paper hearts strung up on the windows and a special heart-shaped dinner.

I don't often decorate for holidays so I know the little ones will be really excited.


There will be just a few treats, special ones from the candymaker in town


wrapped up in paper


and tucked into a heart made of wool.  There are a few truffles for my chocolate-loving husband.

Pretty simple stuff, but I know they'll love it.


Happy Valentine's Day.

best mama ever ^_^ I remember my mom making me a Lifesavers Valentine box to put all my cards in. It still is my favorite V-day memory growing up.

I am not normally a fan of doing things for Valentine's Day (expensive dinner, expensive gifts for this day) - but I LOVE what you do to show your love and care to your family members! Have a very happy day! x

Simple ways of saying 'I love you' or 'Be my friend' ... just the way Valentine's should be celebrated, and exactly how we do it too.

i would have loved a t rex chocolate last night
as it was it was just me and the kitties home last night. I treated them with fresh organic catnip, a little french cheese and a glass of wine for moi and we watched funny cat videos on you tube. Honestly:)

Here in Finland, Valentines day is Ystävänpäivää meaning Friends day. :D Although I am British and miss seeing lovers valentines cards in the shops...it does open up the day to everyone...and is rather nice.

I always make one for my husband instead. :D Lovely blog ideas!
