Love Day


I'll run around all day long for my girls.  The day is really all about them. I'll make sure they have all of their valentines ready to go

and that they're wearing all of their pink heart clothes.  I'll make breakfast pretty for them and play sweet valentine music in the background.

I'll pack heart cookies in their lunch boxes.  I'll volunteer for the Kindergarten party.  I'll set up a special Valentine snack for after school.  Yes sir, I'll exhaust myself but I'm in heaven... I love a holiday (even a Hallmark one) 

But today I'll think about MY valentine.  He's been my valentine since I was fifteen.  And I remember him being so creative on Valentines day 'back in the day.'  My favorite was when I was just an engaged 22 year old in my first year of teaching.  When I walked into my third grade classroom on my desk was a beautiful gold heart locket with our initials engraved on it.  Oh he already had my heart but to get up at the crack of dawn and pull off that surprise... he's my valentine.  When I told him this last night he didn't even remember.  He's one for romance but once it's done he forgets it all.

Looking forward to a sweet evening with my little family.  (and maybe a little less running all around) 

Happy Valentines Day!
