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!
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?
