My mama was my very first Valentine. Every Valentine’s Day, for as long as I can remember, she would give me a card covered in pink and red hearts, a heart shaped box full of chocolates and tons of balloons.
My mama taught me what love is and not because she did all those things on Valentine’s Day for me, but because she never forgot to show me love any time of the year.
Now that I am a mom, I understand that it is so normal to love your children every day, fiercely and wildly! I also understand that it is totally normal to celebrate every holiday, victory, and milestone, no matter how small or how “Hallmark” it may be.
This year is going to be the best Valentine’s Day ever, because I have 3 Valentine’s under my roof that I get to love fiercely and wildly!
I love gift giving and really thought that “Receiving Gifts” was my Love Language for a while, but this post explains why it’s actually not! I just really like to show love in thoughtful and cute ways. Hehe. P.S. I have, “The 5 Love Languages of Children” book and it’s so good, mama! Highly recommend.
I came across this, “You never know dear how much I love you” pillow, this LOVE YOU MORE pillow, this HUG ME pillow AND this, “May The Sun Kiss You Awake Until I Can, May The Moon Kiss You To Sleep Until I Can“, pillow on Amazon and died when I saw them. NEED THEM ALL!
The boys will be getting a cute book about love too. This lift the flap one, is so cute! We actually have a few books by this same author and they have remained favorites in our house. And then this one, I think will be really cute.
I still don’t really know what I am getting Andrew for Valentine’s but I know he loves these so I was thinking of stocking the cupboards with them haha. I mean, that would make sense right?! And he’s been talking about these headphones, so I may grab a couple pairs for him, because he misplaces headphones, a lot!
No matter what day of the year it is, my heart bursts at the seams for my family and I love any excuse to show and express that!
How are you showing love to your favorites this year?
