I think I’ve said before that Valentine’s Day has not always been my favorite holiday. Sure, I’ve enjoyed the special attention from a boy…but, I guess since it’s only 3 days after my birthday (post coming soon), I’ve never really cared for it to be huge.
UNTIL…we had kids! Now, I LOVE IT! I mean, I BIG PUFFY HEART love it!!! I love that it gives Matt and I a reason to celebrate us…and I love having a day to celebrate our family and the love that we share. (and I LOVE pink & red…and hearts…and sparkly things!!!)
So, we had a great Valentine’s Day as a family of four! It started with a fun breakfast for Quinn. He was so excited and appreciative. Oh how I love that boy…Then, before school, I did a little photo shoot of my sweet Momma’s boys. We were a little late to school, but it was well worth it…
And, at lunch time, Nash and I went back up to Quinn’s school to go to his Valentine’s party. It’s so fun to get a glimpse into Quinn’s day. He was definitely showing off for us! (mercy…I hope that’s what caused the craziness that I saw…surely he’s not ALWAYS like that! Let’s hope not!!!) But, it was fun to participate in lunch, crafts and more. What a sweet class he has.
Then, when we got home and got Nash to nap, it was time to dive into all of those Valentines. SO exciting. I, remembering the joy of opening Valentines, got so excited for him. And, he loved each and every thing that he got from his friends.
And, here’s what Quinn gave to his buddies. He was so excited to give it to them…
Finally, it was time to celebrate my first Valentine. I got the table set kinda fun…
…and Matt brought home yummy pizza from our favorite local place, salad and wine. Perfect.
He had left cards at different places throughout the day…which MELTED my heart to no end.
We didn’t do much this year…but I did get him a cool book for us to spend time doing together and a travel Starbucks mug. He got me a membership to a local wine club! I’m SUPER excited. We’ll get a bottle every month…and perks to the winery! SO FUN!!!!
The rest of the evening consisted of some fun family time…and watching some of our favorite shows while enjoying some of that wine! It was a perfectly perfect Valentine’s Day…one that reminded me of how blessed I am to have so much love in my life.
