Happy valentine's day! Last night I had stop one of the information nights for schools, which is a required step in applying, and by applying I mean being placed in the lottery. I have visited them all before when I went through this with Fisher and it was a bit strange to be going through it all again 10 (!) years later for my little m+l. On my way to school one (i think i will be visiting approximately 8 in all over the next week or so) I stopped by Target to kill some time and it was packed. This was when I realized that valentine's day was indeed today. But luckily I made that little detour and was able to jump into the crowds at the card and dollar sections and pick up a few v-day goodies. No big valentine's day plans for us around here, I get so crazed at Christmas, I am usually holiday'ed out until about the fourth of July. Do you have any special v-day plans?
In case you need something to get you in the spirit of love here is this. A few of these definitely gave my heart a serious squeeze and my eyes a little drink of water. And for all the single ladies (and gents) there is this.
Here is a cute little construction paper valentines heart pouch that you can make to store all your valentines in (i think m+l and i might make one today just to hang on the wall.)
And if you are even more behind on valentine's day than I was, this is so simple and kind of clever. Best of all you just need a banana and sharpie.
One of my favorite love stories is that of poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett-Browning. You can read more about their love story here and read some of their beautiful written letters.
Have a wonderful day and weekend. I heart you all so very much. xo
