There is just something about Valentine's Day. It's not that I particularly believe it's the only day to show love, but I do so enjoy and look forward to everything Valentines related. I love the hearts and the sparkle and the flowers and the feeling of spreading the most wonderful emotion. I have always really been into decorating my home and celebrating the holidays but especially with my daughter, I try to take it up a notch. She loves helping me decorate and thinking of food that we can make that fits the holiday theme and everything in between. I have a big extended family and on Saturday, I invited all of my cousins and aunts and grandmother over for a crafting party. We do this a few times a year and it's so fun. My cousins spent the night on Friday to help and we decorated my house with pink red and white, had a little candy buffet of valentine gummies and chocolate candy, and plenty of valentine sweets. We had lunch together and then crafted -- is this a real word?--(the guys screeched out of the house for a beer!) (PS: our crafting projects were painted mason jars and little drawer sachets!!) And I ordered the most delicious cupcakes from Society Sweets that had a little surprise inside (more on that later).
My daughter is in the "I want to be like Mommy" phase (hoping this lasts for years and years- does it?!) and when I saw these sweatshirts by ILY, I knew she would love them! She is not particularly fond of being in front of the camera but I brought lots of goodies along to hold her attention! This little girl is my everything and I can't wait to make Valentines Day so special for her! And I hope yours is so special too! Sweetly- Michelle
