Valentine's Day was always a day my mom made special. Growing up she'd get us candies and put them on our pillows, write us a sweet card, and buy us something special and leave it on our bed. My mom truly has a gift for making you feel thought of.
Traditions are so important to both T & I so each new holiday we're exploring what we want to be our traditions with the 3 of us. Even though Eliana doesn't notice the cute decorations- I still put them up- and even though she will have no idea that she's opening presents on Valentine's Day- I still bought them. Simple, really insignificant presents. A book called If You Give a Mouse a Valentine (I mean- don't get the idea that I'm going big for a 6 month old!), and some fun Valentine's Day related clothes. I wrote her a note in the little board book & as I did I was thinking, "Like she's gonna keep this & look back on it when she's 20 and think- 'I have such a great mom!' ?" A mama can dream that the little stuff matters, right? Right.
February brought with it today 0 degree temperatures but lots of sunshine- which is always nice on these super cold days. My mom will be visiting over Valentine's Day & I'm SO excited that I not only get to have her here on that special day, but that I get to sneak out with my hubby too!
I like February.
Haters gone hate.
