Happy Hearts Day

| 2 Comments

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.

Love.

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?
