The perfect Valentine? Love notes and chocolate, of course!

For the past couple of weeks, love has been in the air at our house. I’ve been taping various love notes and the kids’ Valentine’s cards to our kitchen cabinet.

Look, I even got a lovebug yesterday!

I surprised my kids by leaving them Valentine’s cards and chocolate on the kitchen table to discover this morning. I didn’t want to ignite any sibling rivalry so I made them exactly the same cards and gave them exactly the same chocolate.

Apparently they were very excited by my choice of chocolate and both ran upstairs after they saw it to say, “Thank you for the chocolate, Mama!” Gosh, I hope they share some of it…

Finally, I posted the photo below on my photography website but I thought I’d share it here too. Whether you have someone special to celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, there’s always an opportunity to feel grateful for the people dear to you.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

  1. It’s been a long time since my sons gave me a Valentine’s Day card. But that’s okay. I stopped giving them Valentine’s gifts a few years ago. :)

    But now I want a Toblerone. Haven’t had one in a long time. Yum.
