Valentine's Day Wrap-Up

 Valentine's Day. The day of love. The day of chocolates and flowers and pink & red decorations. The day set aside to let the people you love know that you love them.
Made this cute V-day decoration from here.  And, as always, it took waaaay longer than I was expecting.  Curse Pinterest for making me think I can just whip these projects together in no time.
 My view of Valentine's Day is that the people that you love should ALREADY know that you love them because you show them you love them everyday. 
But then Valentine's Day is just a fun day to point it out again.

 Dr. C and I are not big on Valentine's Day gifts. This year we got each other cards and called it good.  Because when my husband comes home everyday during the chaos of the make-dinner-help-with-homework-get-school-lunches ready-everyone-is-hungry-5 o'clock hour and immediately jumps in to do the dishes or take over dinner prep or folds the load of laundry that has been patiently waiting in the dryer; I know he loves me.
 So for us, we celebrate the day by having our annual Valentine's Day fondue dinner and chocolate fondue dessert with our kiddos and spend the time as a family.  Just to celebrate that we love each other.
 And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day as well!  Much love to you all.

Haven't read your blog for awhile. Just getting caught up. I can't believe how big Ms. Banana has gotten. Her hair is so long too! <3
