Valentine’s day is coming up, and although Ive never been a huge vday person, I’m not one to pass up chocolate and flowers (: There seems to be a lot of pressure surrounding this Holiday, but if anything, take it as an opportunity to show someone you care about (doesn’t have to be your significant other) a little extra love, whether its a few words of affirmation, an extra prayer, or a special treat – doesn’t have to be big!
We will be spending time as a family on Valentine’s day, but I have a little staycation/babymoon planned for this weekend, so it will double as our Valentine’s day celebration. My sister is graciously taking the kids for a night, so I have a hike and a nice dinner, and an uninterrupted night of sleep planned.
If you are looking to shower someone with a gift, I have some of my picks linked below, as well as some NO SPEND GIFT IDEAS, because you dont need to spend money to show someone you love them (: I also listed some date ideas, all covid friendly if you’re wary of going out.

Other than that I’m keeping it simple and will pick a couple festive preschool activities (will link in my newsletter this week, sign up here!).
