And we love you! Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day or do you consider it just another Hallmark holiday? For me personally, it’s just another hallmark holiday. Although, I do like to have a little pink floating around my house this time of year. I love having an excuse to redecorate! Now that I have littles, I think I will “celebrate” the day a little more. Whether that be with heart pancakes or a new book, who knows. Only time will tell. We’d love to hear what you do!
Before I get to our freebie below. Here’s a funny story – Back in 2006, my now husband and I had talked about how silly we think Valentine’s is. I stressed how stupid I thought it was. I mean, flowers die and chocolate makes you fat (that hasn’t ever actually kept me from eating chocolate though). Then, I was sitting at my desk at work on February 14, 2006 watching all of the ladies in my department receive their beautiful bouquets of flowers. I was SO SAD. I mean, like really really sad. I felt so unloved. I kept reminding myself that it was ME who said “flowers die”. Blah blah blah. Like I need flowers to show everyone that I am loved. Pssssshhh.
Well, I called my then boyfriend later that night and told him how sad it made me feel. I seriously felt like such a dork. As bad as he felt, there was a side of him that didn’t get it. Perhaps it’s because he is a man? I explained a little more by saying “it would be like not having cake on your birthday. You don’t have to get me a present, but a cake would be nice…or no fireworks on the 4th of July. You HAVE to have fireworks, right? No green on St. Patricks day? Am I making any sense, dear sweet boyfriend….?”
Moral of the story – If I ever have a job again where people see the flowers that are coming in – buy me some.

Whatever you decide to do this Valentine’s day – mani/pedi with the girls, heart shaped pancakes for your babies, or nothing at all, I hope your day is BEAUTIFUL!
