On to bigger and better is … February!
Like the sappy, romantic girl that I am, Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite commercial holidays!
I love the cards, the chocolate and the idea of love.
Two years ago, my hubby surprised all of us girls with a special Valentine’s picnic dinner in our living room. He prepared all of our favourite picnic treats and surprised us each with a small but meaningful gift. Once dinner was over and the gifts were exchanged, we all had dessert and then watched a family movie together.
It all made for a sweet and memorable day!
Since that year, we have all decided to turn that one special day into a Valentine’s Day tradition. We have continued to celebrate the *day of love* in much the same way. We change things up a bit by adding new items to the dinner menu and surprising each other with new and different gifts but for the most part, we keep things pretty much the same. Simple.
We’re all looking forward to this year’s Valentine’s Day celebration. We’re all anticipating what new tricks Daddy will pull out from under his sleeve.
The girls will be making special Valentine’s Day cupcakes for dessert and Mommy will be making hot chocolate lattes to go with the cupcakes! Oh, and vanilla coffee lattes for the grown-ups!
It doesn’t take much to please the Bees with Honey Girls …
