I cannot properly express how much I love Valentine’s Day. I think it might be my favorite holiday. Even though I probably say that about every holiday, I feel like this one might be it. Growing up, my parents made a big deal about Valentine’s Day, and I love them for it. Because that’s likely how it all began. I love making it fun for the kids, from the moment I wake them up until the second their head hits the pillow at the end of the day. I love them every day. And I am loved every day. But Valentine’s Day? It’s just that extra special day to put it all over the top. The day when people are happier. Celebrating love. My friend, Patrizia, texted me last night, “I think I went overboard for Valentine’s Day.” I assured her that there was no such thing.
My littlest sous chef. We started Valentine’s Day prep last night, as three of the kids went to work making Cherry Shortbread Hearts. Yum.

Love that shirt with the hearts (Old Navy). Sent one to Sophie too. Too cute.
