Encouraging Hearts and Home: Happy Valentine's Week

With Valentine's day just three days away I have really got to get a plan in place.  I've bought my Valentines some chocolates and I've made some cards but I still haven't quite picked out all the recipes I want to make for our family dinner.  Do you have any special Valentine's Day traditions?  This week I am featuring some Valentine's favorites from last week's party.  

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!

Linking Up With: Thinking Out Loud


  1. We don't do much for Valentine's Day but I should probably go get something little for the kids! Thanks for hosting the link up, Joanne! Happy Valentine's Day!


    1. We sure don't go all out but I do like to do some small thing to let my guys know hos much I love and appreciate them.

  2. Valentine's Day is not such a big thing over here - we have Family Day on another date instead - but we maintain our British traditions and my hubbie always gets a handmade cards and some chocolate :)

  3. Now that our last 2 unmarried kids are all grown up, we have been taking them out for pizza on Valentine's Day.

  4. Wow, I'm surprised (though pleased) that my menu was the most viewed last week!
    I'm not making a special dinner on Valentine's Day, but we are making and decorating cookies.
    Thanks for hosting!

  5. We dont do a lot for Valentine's... our big thing was always breakfast when its on teh weekend but with COVID, we havent ate out since last March - so mabe we'll do a Panera drive thru Valentine's thing :)

    1. We rarely think to go out for breakfast but we do have a place nearby that makes fabulous muffins and English muffins.

  6. Still planning our Valentine Dinner here too- so many options when you hop on Pinterest :)

    1. I know! I keep thinking I know exactly what I want to make and then see something else and change my mind...

  7. Thank you for the party. My husband and I always celebrate Valentine's Day and I send goodies and cards to the kids.

    1. You're welcome! I bet your care packages are greatly appreciated.

  8. Thanks for hosting this lovely link up, Joanne, and for featuring my Vintage Button Heart!

  9. JoAnne,
    Thanks so much for hosting! I really appreciate the work and time you put in to host a party. I thank you too for visiting each link to pick out features....Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  10. Yay! I finally got here in time to party! I've been so behind on my reading, but when I'm writing I'm reading, so I'm trying to stay on top of both. I've loved seeing all of these Valentine's Day posts because I really have not been feeling the holiday this year.

    That button heart is my favorite up there!

  11. Thanks so much for hosting! I’m linking up with my first RVers Linkup. Looking for blog posts about adventures, tips, and experiences RVing through the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

    1. I saw that RVers link up and thought it sounded like so much fun. I used to travel A LOT with my grandparents in their RV.
