Here is a little sneak peak at our Valentine making festivities today. Chick made 22 (+ 3 for her three classroom teachers) love rocks, and Mouse made two for both of her teachers (plus a bunch of extras to use for her "rock show").
And by festivities, I mean two peppy kids happily gluing hearts onto rocks while two tired, sick parents sip tea and cough into tissues. Laundry really isn't my thing, but this yucko virus has made me fantasize about washing every single germ off of every single piece of cloth in our house.
Enough about germs, though. To me, Valentine's Day has always felt like a big splash of bright paint that pools into our grayish, powdery, white, winter world. I really do like celebrating a bit with notes and hearts and tiny tokens of love. It makes me happy.
