I don’t know about you, but I find that Valentine’s Day creeps up on me too quickly! January tends to be a catch up month for me. It’s about putting away holiday decorations, re-organizing, decluttering, cleaning and getting back to life as usual.
I start to enjoy the less chaotic life and before I know it, it is Superbowl and then January is gone. There are only 14 days in February before Valentine’s Day and those 14 days fly by.
This year, I have already received so many emails in my inbox about Valentine’s Day Flowers on sale, gifts for her and Valentine’s Day crafts.
I love Valentine’s day but believe it or not, it’s not because of Valentines Day gifts for her! In fact, I often tell my husband to skip the flowers and this year, he knows to stay far, FAR away from the chocolate.
I love spoiling my family, the people I love, with fun homemade cards, crafts and fun Valentine’s Day food. I tend to go all out with pink and red hearts and flowers EVERYTHING.
So, considering it is already the last few days of January, I had better get my behind in gear and start planning our special Valentine’s Day!
Here is what I need to do:
- Help my daughter make Valentine’s Day cards and treats for her classmates.
- Make my family Valentine’s Day cards.
- Get my Valentine’s Day books out of the basement.
- Plan some fun Valentine’s Day crafts and activities for the kids.
- Make a Valentine’s Day menu plan, including a fun heart themed lunch for my daughter to take to school.
Stay tuned for some Valentine’s Day craft ideas, fun food ideas as well as Valentine’s Day cards!
