Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?
Our typical Valentine’s Day is spent at home, my husband and I typically do an at home date complete with dinner and desserts. This year though, we are going on a day date this weekend complete with antique shopping. I won’t lie, I’m overly excited since we could both use a break!
I’m also looking forward to doing a Valentine’s Day breakfast for my son this year. I really like the idea of doing extra special things on holidays as my son is getting older and really gets into it now.
I’ll let you in on a secret though, my ultimate favorite part about Valentine’s Day is the card and chocolate that my dad gets my sister and I. Ever since I can remember, when we would wake up on Valentine’s Day morning, my sister and I would go into the kitchen and there were always 3 cards and 3 heart shaped boxes full of candy for my mom, sister, and I.
My dad still says we will always be his Valentine’s and he made sure we knew we were loved…of course, he makes sure of that year round not just on one day. Even better than the chocolate, I love his cards. They make me want to cry every time I read them even if it’s just one line that says how much he has loved me since I was born…brings on the tears.
Now that we are older and on our own, he stops by our house with our Valentine’s Day treats!
