Happy Valentines Day

I know many women don’t like Valentines Day maybe it’s because the card, candy, flower and jewelry companies tell you today is the day you say “I Love You” to your significant other. And it’s all mushy and sappy….but I happen to like the holiday and here’s why:1) it was my husbands and my first date-by pure coincidence.

2) it’s pink and red and pink and white and pink

3) my mom made each holiday special and on Valentines Day would make us pink oatmeal or heart shaped pancakes and usually gave us a small gift, something I will continue to do with my kids

4) for us it’s a take and bake pizza, wine, chocolate (cupcakes from HappyCakes! Red Hot Velvet and Chocolate Raspberry Ganache) and watch a romantic comedy night (this year it’s, theHoliday with Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black and Cameron Diaz).
Which also means no expensive restaurants, no roses, no jewelry etc. Just some good quality time alone. This has been our tradition from and start and I look forward to it every year.

5) it’s something fun to look forward to in the middle of the bleak winter

6)and it’s not hyped up three months prior like Christmas so I am not totally sick of it two weeks before it even arrives.

happy heart day to all of you

  1. Your night sounds perfect to me. It is about quality time, not stuff, right?

    Have a special time and here’s hoping that little Petunia at least sleeps through the duration of the movie!

    That is a simply fabulous movie. I loved it from the very first. Spending Valentines like you are doing can’t be beat. Petunia will not wake up. Think positive. Enjoy.
