Hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day. I personally love this holiday. It is a permenant reminder of the amazing love & support I get each day from my other half, my best friend & father to our son, my husband Matt. It is also a day to celebrate the love we have because it created our beautiful almost-3 year old son, Riley. I know a lot of people call this holiday superficial. Usually they are the broken-hearted, lonely or people who just don't get all into commericialism. I do agree with people who say that each day should be Valentine's Day, but with crazy work schedules, sippy cups, snacks, picking up toys and more we all do each day, I know at least for me, I don't always say as many "I Love You's" as I should. So it is nice to have a day to go the extra mile and do those little extra things, like pick up a favorite candy (ahem, Giradelli's caramel chocolates or chocolate covered gummi bears) or rent a favorite movie.
My Valentine's Day started off by waking up next to my two boys, one who belongs in the bed and the other who decided to crash in the middle of the night due to monsters in his closet. Needless to say, it was a restless night. We woke up and had our heart-shaped doughnuts for breakfast and exchanged our cards. Riley was so happy about his card. He hugged it and didn't even want to open it. He eventually did and his present, which is a cute puppy dog who's ears flop and play music when you squeeze him. Tonight we are picking up Grandma who is coming to visit, and celebrating an early birthday tomorrow at Disney on Ice! I am beyond excited. Tinker Bell, Ariel, Buzz & Lightning McQueen??!! Disney couldn't have combined better movies together for a spectacular ice show.
Anyways, give extra hugs and kisses to the people in your life who make you smile!! I have some exciting news coming up in the next couple of weeks...and it may just spin into a brand new project as well.
