Cute heart-shaped every things, oodles of candy, fuzzy pink and red crafts, parties and card exchanges at school. It's no mystery why my kids get a kick out of Valentine's Day.
If you have school-age children, they're probably knee deep in card exchange preparations. And when I say "knee deep" I mean, they're complaining about writing their name 23 times and you're preparing the rest.

I thought I was doing well. Pinterest recently showed me these super adorable and clever ideas... not doing as well as I thought. I can only hope to be in this league someday. Unfortunately, by the time that happens, I doubt my college-age children will want to hand these out to their professors.
I think we're going to do the Bear Hugs this year, if my kids are into it. If not, simple cards with some candy will have to do.
I'm not about to attempt to-be-handed-out-in-public gifts this late in the game. Instead, I have a few stay-at-home-free-of-judgement crafts planned for the weekend. That blog will be coming tomorrow. Stay tuned!
