Encouraging Hearts and Home-- Happy Valentine's Day!

I know Valentine's can be a bit of a cheesy holiday but I just love it!  I love having an excuse to shower my boys and husband with love and attention.  I planned to start our day with some homemade cinnamon buns and have a turkey dinner all set for tonight.  They each were greeted with a little token gift this morning (just a small box of chocolates) and we have a few fun activities planned for our day.

How will you celebrate?

  1. We used to do a lot more for Valentine's Day when the children were younger. Now I'm not sure we really "celebrate". I like the idea of a special dinner.

    1. Thanks! I'm not sure they always appreciate it as it's impossible to come up with a meal that pleases everyone but I do try.

  2. Great post! We always did a big thing when the girls were smaller. This year we are just starting a new tradition and all 4 of us are going out to eat together with my sister and her family and mom. Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. That sounds wonderful!! Hope you all have a great meal.

  3. Thanks for the link up. I'll add you to my list.
