Valentine's Day

(Above - Chocolate testing I had with hubby 2 years ago)

It's just over 1 month away and I'm excitedly making plans for this year.  Now if you're one of those "Valentine's Day is one of those stupid Hallmark holidays we don't celebrate", or "I can pick any day of the year to love and celebrate my family", move on please.  I always have and always will love 
Valentine's Day.  

Growing up my mom always did something very special for us on Valentine's Day.  It was always fun seeing what she had planned.  It was especially fun when it fell on a school day and I'd anticipate all day long what she was doing.  She'd always make a fantastic meal and incorporate hearts into it any way she could.  We would also always get a special card from her and special treats.  

Now that I have my own family, I try to follow the same theme as my mother.  It's always been a special time for our family too.  No matter what our budget, we've always been able to make the day very special.  There are so many fun things you can do as a family and as a couple.

Thank you mom for the legacy of Love!
