Ready for the big day of love? Have reservations at your favorite romantic restaurant with your loved one? Ready to be surprised with flowers and chocolate? A nice gift maybe? All these sound nice doesn’t it? While I once experienced all these in a time where I was in the ‘dating’ game, the truth is things change; and that’s ok. The truth is we have kids now. Valentine’s day is now a day for me to do something special for my little ones, buy them a little bit of chocolate, and enjoy the day spent with my loved ones. Here are some activities that you could do with your family!
Do things that you all enjoy
Head to the park for a picnic
Go see a family movie together
Have a family dinner out together
Go to the beach (for those of you who live in warm weather)
Do arts and crafts together
Have a play date
Or simply hang out at home
This year Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend, which makes it more of a family event for us. So whatever it is you decide, do it together. Don’t think you have to go to a fancy dinner, or that you’ll be missing out if you don’t. Of course I miss dressing up and being spoiled, but I can still dress up and feel special, just in my new way. I love that I have two extra little ones to spoil now, and smother them with kisses. Valentine’s day is a day of love. Whether it be you going out to do something, or sit at home and do nothing, do it together, have fun and enjoy your loved ones around you. The perfect Valentine’s Day is YOUR Valentine’s Day, do what makes you happy and that’s all that matters. Sending out love and happiness to you all! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
