Happy Valentine's Day

Today is a day that is SO over commercialized! I like to have an excuse to get my kids something. My husband and I generally don't exchange gifts. We kinda do that throughout the year. Honestly, I like it better that way! It's more spontaneous, and much more of a surprise.
This weekend was my first Sunday to teach the Young Women. I had been teaching 6 and 7 year old kids for the past 2 years. So, mostly since it was my first Sunday with them, but also because Valentine's Day was coming up. I made these treats for my girls.

Jenna and I both sat down and made Valentine's Saturday night. We had so much fun! We also baked brownies and lemon bars. It was a good evening.

Well, although I feel it's a commercialized holiday, I still am very grateful for the love I have in my life. My husband and my children are my all! They lift me up when I am down. They make me smile! They give my life meaning and purpose. I love my Valentines! Always have, ALWAYS will!!


  1. I knew I smelled brownies yesterday! Cute post!

  2. Having read this I believed it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this
    informative article together. I once again find
    myself spending a lot of time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worth it!

  6. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
