Happy Hearts Day


Of all of the holidays that we celebrate, Valentine’s Day is the one I’ve got figured out.

We’ve got our Valentines traditions pretty well set.

We’ve been baking heart-shaped cookies for weeks now.

We made valentines to send to close friends and family. They involved lots of tiny heart-shaped stickers. And glitter. And most of them will get there right on time.

This morning, she unwrapped a new book. Our Valentines tradition. A gift to feed her love of books.

This has always been one of my favorites.

Because when you strip out the over-priced flowers, the pressure, the overwhelming expectations sometimes attributed to the day, you’re left with something simple.


A day to unabashedly let loved ones know you’re thinking about them. With hearts and sugar and glitter.

What could be better than that?
