Doesn’t it feel like holidays just ended ladies? I can’t believe that in two weeks it’ll be Valentine’s Day already. February is a big month for us as its the month our youngest was born. (which also makes it one of my favorite months even though I don’t enjoy the cold ) She is the only winter bday in the family, and we usually plan a mini winter vacation around it, and try to make this time special for her.

Just a few days after her bday is Valentines Day which creates a lot of extra excitement in our household. I truly believe there are many reasons to enjoy Valentines Day regardless of having a significant other or not. Although I do enjoy going out on dates with hubby or having a special activity with the kids for V-day, I think for me the magic of the day is in all the fun that surrounds it. Here are 5 Things I personally love about Valentine’s Day.

I LOVE TO START THE DAY WITH A YUMMY BREAKFAST

On a regular day I do my best to give my family a nutritious, healthy and balanced breakfast. On special days including Valentine’s Day that rule goes out of the window haha. I LOVE preparing an extra delicious breakfast and I completely go gaga over heart shaped pancakes, waffles layered with chocolate spread, and sprinkled with tiny confetti candy.

I LOVE VALENTINE’S PAJAMAS AND ALL PINK & RED ITEMS WITH HEARTS 

I have to admit, I wait each year for Valentine’s merchandise to come out and I jump on them the moment I see pinks & reds, adorned with hearts, roses, and cute critters. I have a soft spot for Valentine’s Pajamas & nightgowns especially. They are an item I wear every single night, and there are so many styles available. I got this unbelievably cozy, and comfortable pair while getting groceries at one of Fred Meyer ‘s super sized markets that are amazing for one stop shopping.

There were many varieties of Valentine’s pajamas available at the store. I could not choose for the longest time, and ended up purchasing two pairs. ( they are so well priced too!!) I ADORE this long sleeve pink pair with hearts and arrows. It’s very girly just the way I like my night wear, and is so very soft, and  comfy at the same time. Check these pretties out at the stores ladies. I can’t recommend them enough! You’ll live & lounge in them.

I LOVE VALENTINE’S CRAFTS 

Actually creating Valentines is one of my favorite activities for Valentine’s Day. The kids always feel giddy making cards for their classroom & family friends, and I love helping them decorate their boxes that hold everything they receive. Over the years we’ve made frames, bracelets, necklaces, lanterns, and books for the day. LOVE!

I LOVE CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE I HEART

The biggest reason I love Valentine’s day is the most obvious; the day is all about LOVE!  Seeing, hearing, watching LOVE all around me makes me feel energized. Whether you are celebrating with family, significant other, school & work friends, or your best friends you got together with for a Galentine’s day, its a time people show appreciation to each other. I love all the ways people express this, be it with words, chocolates, cards, flowers you name it. Any form of that connection is lovely.

 I LOVE EATING VALENTINE’S CHOCOLATE & WATCHING ROMANTIC MOVIES 

I said chocolate above right haha? You ladies may have read my recent fitness update. I completely limited my chocolate intake as chocolate is my biggest weakness. On Valentine’s Day all bets are off though. It’s a day of indulgence, and for me indulgence always includes that magic word; CHOCOLATE. <3 I eat as many varieties as I can in as many cute shapes as possible. If I can watch one of the romantic movies that come to the theaters AND eat chocolate, even better.

What are your favorite things about Valentine’s Day? I would LOVE to hear all about it.
