Valentines!


Oh boy the season that bring the holiday you either love or hate!

I personally love Valentines Day!  Yes, I think you should show the ones you love that you love them everyday and not just a given day of the year.  However in the whirl wind of life sometimes it is hard to always take out some extra special time for your spouse or your kids.  I think this day helps us to slow down and remember what God has given us and that we should cherish it.

Ephesians 4:2-3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace
.

So the question is what do you do to make Valentines Day special in your home?

14 Love Notes
Each day starting today I will make a note and place it someplace that the love of my life will find.
This blog has some good ideas!

Since I want to make my kids feel special as well as my boyfriend I plan on having a big breakfast with the kids favorite foods.  
Color the eggs pink/red
Cut french toast into heart shapes
Make pink/red pancakes
Then for dinner the kids will have their dinner and be off to watch a movie and my boyfriend and I can have a dinner with just us.

  1. Breakfast sounds yummy. I didn't even think to color eggs. I think the kids would have a blast with that. I do not know what I am going to do. Our anniversary is on Valentines Day.
