Ahhh…. love

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.

Nate’s Valentine for his class. I never buy these for him – though he would eat this crap every day…. He actually helped put them together last night! #MomWin I am sure this year’s teacher will be happy it’s not whoopie cushions again (sorry about that Mrs. Corea!)

Kevin’s choice of class Valentines…. Swedish Fish!  And of course we had to make a dozen extra, so he can pass out to favorite teachers, staff and friends not in class!

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!

  1. You know. I l would be so much more touched by flowers on February 12th than february 14th. I enjoy Valentines Day but there is nothing more romantic than getting unprovoked tolkens of love
