It is a weird day really. I mean the origins are pure and the idea is lovely but somehow mixed in to all the sweet sentiment are those years when the expectation of the day didn’t live up to the reality. So I’ve been thinking about how I want my children to view Valentine’s day. And I quickly rejected the cheesy romantic angle and instead decided how fun would it be to make a candlelight dinner for all of us to enjoy together. Make it a day to celebrate our family and the love we have for each other.
So our Valentine’s day tradition has been born. And as soon as we have all woken up from a nap (can you believe it they all went to sleep at the same time?) we will decorate and cook for when daddy gets home.
A full report with pictures will be posted tomorrow 🙂
