Kids valentines for friends and loved ones were packed away in backpacks and the post office this morning.

I am making lemon sandwich cookies and homemade oreos for my Valentine. A naughty candygram was also put together for him. It's tradition you see.

He made the kids heart shaped pink pancakes this morning, placing his hand drawn valentines for each kid where they usually sit for breakfast.

He made me valentines that had inside jokes, memories and quotes in each one. Best. Gift. Ever. (simple is how we roll for this holiday).

I hope you enjoy your Monday...even if you don't like this made up holiday. For me it's just another day that I can show those I love how much I really do.
