Seriously, it's February, how did that happen? The plum tree out in front of my house is almost in full pink bloom and the dafodils are pushing their way up and even starting to bloom too. Spring has just begun here in California and I've been too busy to notice. Wait, it's still winter?
So I've just remembered that I need to think about Valentine's Day. The husband and I have never been big on celebrating this comercial holiday. It always seems like such a forced day - pressure is on. If you need a special day to say "I love you" and do something nice for your sweetie then just pick any day of the week. But none the less we'll be heading to this restaurant over the weekend. We've been wanting to go and had an offer for babysitting - excellent plan.
But I remember as a kid waking up in the morning and finding a special treat at my place at the table on Valentine's Day. My parents started a tradition of giving me a heart shaped box each year. I still have many of them wrapped up tight somewhere.... Then there was the exchanging of cards at school. Ah, the adventure has just begun for me on the parent side. What do I do for Valentine's Day cards?
I spotted these downloadable cards over at Bunny Cakes. She has a bunch of adorable cards available for free you should check out. I may use these cuties if I don't get my act together this week to make our own. Plus here is a great link for 30 Printable Valentines from the long thread.
