Okay, so I know it’s a commercialized holiday when companies can market to their heart’s content, in order to tug at your heart-strings for whatever they might be selling but what’s so wrong with a day that gets national recognition for love? In the fast-paced world we live in, I’ve come to enjoy this day more and more, especially when I feel like you get a free pass to just slow down and enjoy the simple things in life.
Now, we never went too overboard with this holiday but my mom always made us feel extra special and I plan to do just that with baby A. Here are a couple of my favorite Valentine faces this year, some fun decorations we put up around the house and a little gift my husband thought of to give Ava that we put the finishing touches on last night. Unfortunately, the second we gave her the chalk, she took it to draw on the actual wall vs. the chalkboard. Oh well, we will get there. It’s the thought that counts.
