Valentine's Day Happenings

Valentine's Day has never really been a big deal for me. My mom always gave us a little box of chocolate and conversation hearts and a cute card. My hubby and I exchanged small gifts for a while, but lately we haven't done much. This year however, I think we will plan a "grown-up" fondue dinner which will occur after my son has fallen asleep (hopefully we can wait that long to eat!).

My son is 20 months old now and thinks that coloring is the greatest thing in the whole wide world (next to milk and Disney's Cars movie). So, I plan on cutting out little contruction paper hearts and helping him made Valentine's Day cards for my parents, my sister and my grandmothers. I think they will get a big kick out of his artwork and he will have a ball coloring all weekend long.

Here's an example of his fabulous artwork:

Look out Picasso!

If paper hearts aren't your thing, take a look at these heart earrings that are available in my Etsy shop:


I have them available in several colors, click here to see what I have in stock.


Don't forget, there is still time to enter my One World One Heart Giveway! I'll be drawing a winner on Feb 11.

Happy Valentine's Day!
