The kids and I have been busy for weeks making homemade Valentine cards and Valentine crafts, putting together cards and gifts for their classmates, and decorating our house with hearts.
Every day in February leading up to Valentine's Day I post an "I love you because..." heart on the boys' bedroom doors - a little extra love to warm up these winter morning wake-ups.
Valentine's Day morning they woke up to Valentine chocolates and candies and gifts and a breakfast of heart-shaped pancakes with heart-shaped strawberries.
Their school lunches were filled with heart-shaped jam sandwiches, heart-shaped apple and strawberry slices, heart-shaped sugar cookies and chocolate hearts - and a special Valentine from Mom for a lunchtime surprise.
And later tonight, once the kids are all in bed, hopefully my husband and I will have a few moments alone together for an adults' Valentine's Day celebration to remind ourselves where this family we love so much started.
