Dear Valentine’s Day Projects,

Dear Valentine’s Day Projects,

There was a time when a whole day would be dedicated to you.  My girls would put together cards for all their classmates while I worked on a new project.  Remember that year when we painted all of the wood hearts together and made into into a banner to hang across the stairs?   That one was so sweet, especially when the girls signed them.  I should go dig those out of the bin.

This year though, I am not sure what my kids are up for.

But I am not giving up hope just yet.

There was this moment in the store the other day that gave me hope.  Yes, Peanut is under that bear.

Peanut left with some gifts for her friends and a pack of Valentine’s.  Sunshine could not even be convinced to give cards to her friends as a joke.

But I am not giving up hope.

The rustic Valentine letters will come back out.




And my embroidered canvas art will come back out as well.




And I may even decide to bake some heart shaped brownies.  If nothing else, I should be able to woo them with brownies.




But no matter how big they get, they will always receive their special letter from me.  I may not make a video of it this year, but the letter will always come.  Because you and I both know, sweet Valentine’s day projects, that the most important thing is that they know how much they are loved.




Thank you for all the memories and I am looking forward to making new ones together.


The mom who’s kids are growing so fast

  1. Ahh, this post struck me like an arrow straight through the heart! 😉 My kids are all teenagers and young adults, and they do their “own thing” for Valentine’s Day now. At least I still have their Dad. 😉 Love your projects, brownies will definitely be included in our celebration. They might even sit down to dinner with us if I make brownies… 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day Laura!
