Valentine’s Day is one of my very favorite days of the year. I like that it doesn’t involve a ton of materialism (sure there’s chocolates and flowers but you can choose to ignore those and we do- at least the flowers- I never say no to chocolate). We celebrate together as a family. Dates aren’t for Valentine’s Day opposed to popular belief- At least not in our house. Instead, we have a family party with traditional fondu and valentines exchanged.
Like many things this year, I just haven’t been able to get into the spirit. One might think it’s because of the grey weather, I tend to suppose it’s the exhaustion of raising a rambunctious three year old boy. Whatever the reason, getting dressed up and decorating with the kiddos helped push me into the loving feelings.
Is anyone else struggling with the winter blahs this year. I just can’t shake this feeling. As with most things in life, it’s not how you feel but what you choose. And, I’m choosing to cut out hearts with my babes and dance in fabulous shoes.
