I’m not one for hoping for big romantic gestures on Valentine’s Day (or ever really). I am more of a love with all you have every day type of girl.
Seriously – I get anxious if someone spends three times as much to buy flowers or go to dinner – just because of the holiday! I would rather stay at home, and get flowers another time.
Now don’t get me wrong…. I love when thought and effort goes into making any day a little brighter. It can be something really small. It can be a huge, grand shenanigan…. as long as I know it comes from your heart, it is my favorite.
As a hot-mess mom, I (of course) spent the last few nights staying up later than I should to create the Valentine’s for my boy’s classes…. This is likely the last year I will have such a task to undertake – next year we will be in middle school, and I am sure we will be much too cool to do something like it.
We try to not make a big deal about this holiday (because I would be disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm in my house… because #boys) – but I know that all my guys know that I love them… I only say it a million times every day. I love all my people!
I did get a new to us treadmill for the garage this week as an early gift (thanks love!)…. now I just need to get my ass up in the morning and use it! I bought some yummy sugar cookies for the guys (sorry didn’t bake myself, but I kinda suck). Exchanged some bitmoji messages and GIFs with my boys, to show my unwavering love. Oh, and one of our dogs left a surprise in the hallway this morning, so there is that. If I am lucky, the other little dog will probably eat another one of my shoes today too…. It will be a no-cook, leftovers and wine kind of night – and that is perfect!
I hope that your Valentine’s Day is whatever you want it to be! Whether you go big or keep it quiet – I hope that you know you are loved EVERY SINGLE DAY!
