Happy Valentine’s Day!

Heart Cookies Resized

Don’t those cookies look so goodThis girl makes fabulous-looking cookies.

This week I’m still trying to find the time to sit down and write out Wyatt’s birthday posts, and I haven’t had much time to think about a Valentine’s post.  I didn’t want to just ignore the holiday though, so I thought I’d write about my favorite Valentine’s Day.

I couldn’t pick though, because I’ve had so many good ones.  I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day, even when I was single.

When I was young, my parent’s used to get us a little gift for Valentine’s Day.  Usually just some candy, or maybe a stuffed animal, but it made the holiday special. We’d all make cards for each other and sit down in the morning to exchange them.

Then there was my first Valentine’s with Derek.  He surprised me by showing up at my dental hygiene college campus, and he brought me flowers and a teddy bear.  All my classmates were impressed and said he was a keeper (I already knew this).

Our Valentine’s as a married couple before we had Wyatt were a lot of fun too.  We usually planned a Valentine’s Day weekend getaway, and we’ve had some fun memories from those trips.

And then last Valentine’s was special, even though we didn’t go anywhere, because it was our first full day home with our brand-new baby boy.  I made Derek a card, and he picked up some flowers he had ordered for me.  We gave Wyatt his first bath.  It was low-key, but so nice.

To me, Valentine’s is just a day to tell those who you love that you do.  Whether it be your parents, grandma, siblings, best friend, children, or hubby, trying to make the day special for others is bound to make it special for you too. I hope you all make some wonderful Valentine's Day memories today!
