I love this day more than most. I have ALWAYS loved this day. Even as a child. It wasn't about if I'm in love with someone... it's about LOVE in general. My mom made this day about us. Her showing love to us. I looked forward to all the thoughtful things my mom did for us. we spent time as a family. Quality time.
Now that I'm a parent, I hope to do the same for my sons. I love my boys everyday. We even do fun stuff everyday. I'm home with them... annoying them all day, I'm sure. ;) But, on Valentines Day, I want to show them an extra special day of love for my family.
Then tomorrow night, it's all about Grant and I. Date night. We date every Saturday. I look forward to it all week, and I get butterflies with the thought of dressing fabulous, and going out with the most beautiful man I know. He is generous, loving, loyal, a great dad, and husband. I'm a lucky girl. I love dating that man.
So, there you have it. This is what Valentine's is for me. I don't want flowers. I want time. I want love. I want my boys.
I hope everyone has a great day, and feels love somewhere.
Here are some pictures of my love muffins.
