I hope you have all had a nice Valentine’s Day. I’ve always loved the day — whether I was single, before kids (BK), married, and even now with kids, it is a good day. I was just thinking about the times when I was growing up and I couldn’t wait to open that “special valentine” card filled with a paper note and conversation heart candy. I just KNEW that those conversation heart candies meant “TRU LUV” when given by the boy I had a crush on.
Today was a pretty simple day. A terrible snow storm came in and cut out some travel plans to see family. At the same time, the simple things that I often take for granted occurred. I decided to really enjoy the little things. Saturdays are known as “hard work days” around here and the kids had to clean rooms. A simple breakfast, playing with legos, giving the kids their coupon books, and thinking about how quickly time goes by. I’m usually in a race to this and that mode, and those often accompany the “guilty-mommy” syndrome that I think many of us can have. But today was different. And I felt a whole lot better.
It’s still very cold outside – practically a blizzard. But I came across this great idea from www.MarthaStewart.com. Just the right way to end a snow-storm-but-slowing-it-down kind of day. Plus, it IS Valentine’s Day. Perfect.
