How We Celebrate Valentines Day!

I’ll be honest… I haven’t always been a fan of Valentines Day. I think it’s a pretty overrated holiday. Mainly because I don’t think love should be celebrated one day out of the year. But this year I got in the spirit of February. I’ve put in the effort to make everyday leading up to Valentine’s Day full of special treats to remind all my boys how much I love them.

I’m not into decorating for holidays except Christmas 🎄 I put a few little things up around the house that aren’t over the top. Everything I either found in old boxes or Target dollar spot.

I wrote a love note to both boys for each day until Valentine’s Day. I really enjoyed it + I think I’ll make it a tradition. It made me more grateful for them + the quirks that make them special.

Talon’s Valentine’s 4 school;

Target has super cute ones that aren’t characters (I like to keep it classic and neutral). For his teachers, I got coffee mugs + bath bombs.

For the boys;

A cute shirt, book, some treats + a date night with me. Talon and I will go to dinner + a movie Friday night. Cohen and I will go out for breakfast on Valentine’s Day. Showing them love individually is important to me. I’ve been wanting to make this a monthly thing for a while now. Now is the perfect time to start.

Trader Joe’s goodies for the win!

For Kyle;

We’re not big into gifting unless it’s our birthday or Christmas. SO… I’ll bring him breakfast in bed Saturday morning + let him play video games without interruption for 2 hours 😂 #thatslove. Hopefully we’ll catch dinner + a movie sometime this weekend and/or next weekend?

One of my goals for this year is to be more present, not stress the little things + give with experiences, not just gifts. Let the boys help me in the kitchen more, without micro-managing them. Showing them that I love them, not just telling them.

Paleo friendly desserts coming at ya this weekend! ❤️

How do you + your family celebrate Valentine’s Day?
