Valentine’s Day LOVE

Well, what happens when you haven’t blogged in two months and both kids are napping at the same time…2 posts in one day! This one will be short and sweet.

Valentine’s has never really been something I was super into. Dris and I don’t do gifts. We typically just order pizza and have a glass of wine – not much different than any average weekend night. But with the kids – I am all in on Valentine’s Day. I think that after Thanksgiving and Christmas are over I am pretty much “holiday-done“; and then by the time February 14th rolls around I have had enough of a breather to jump back into the fun. And let’s be honest – V-Day is pretty low maintenance, so a little goes a long way 🙂

This year Luci got to do actual Valentine’s for her friends at school. I found these cute tags via Pinterest and after $1, a trip to Fedex and with a little assembly help from Andris – they were ready to go!


Luci has gymnastics on Friday mornings, so we had her little friends over for a some Hearts Day treat making before gymnastics. The kids played, made chocolate covered pretzels (with sprinkles!) and the moms got to sip on their coffee and talk. This was an all around WIN.

I am excited to continue our tradition tonight with pizza and wine and celebrate with all my LOVES. Happy Valentine’s Day from Hillside Lane.
