Happy Valentines Day everyone!! I have to admit, while I love to celebrate almost anything, Valentine’s Day is one of the holidays that I feel gets very commercialized. (Could it be that I am a bit bitter about the fact they my sons Valentine’s cards came withOUT envelopes, thus 2 rolls of tape later we got a bunch of *sticky* candy taped to the back of them… sigh…what happened to the darn envelopes anyway?)
Anyway… I just at any chance to show my family how much I love them, and for that, I will jump right on in and celebrate the LOVE of this day. I thought I would share with you a few of the ways that I am doing that today.
First of all … I started the day off by making my family heart shaped (pink!) pancakes… my kids got a big kick out of this. I also filled the kitchen canisters with candy hearts and marshmallows. (those canisters, btw, are in my top 10 garage sale finds to date!)
I am really excited about the gift that I made for my hubby. Last week, my good friend Jaycie over at CouponGeek shared a neat idea for a photo gift. I decided to give it a try, and I LOVE how it turned out. I took a photo of my wedding band in an open page of my bible, and followed her instructions to let the light come in and create a natural heart shape just below my ring…I must say, I am SHOCKED that it work, and it turned out wonderful! I already have it in a frame, ready to give my hubby…..
How to do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Hope you are sharing the love, today and everyday!! Happy Heart Day to you!!
