I am thinking this morning about how exicted I am for Valentines Day! Before I was married, I woke up each Valentines Day to a GINORMOUS, I am talking Baking sheet sized, Sugar Cookie with my name on it! Our special Valentine from Mom! We loved it! I love re-creating these traditions for my kids! Although my decorating ability leaves much to be desired, unlike my Mothers crazy amazing knack of getting it JUST RIGHT, I am hoping my kids will be delighted when they wake up to this......
These were from a couple of years ago. The "My Sweet Prince" was totally an inside joke between my sister Lisa and I. I DO NOT call my hubby "Sweet Prince", "Lovey Man" yes! "My Sweet Prince", um NO WAY!
Looking at these pictures reminded me of the Valentines Day the year I made these. I had a lunch at my house for a bunch of friends.
I am missing all of those girlies today!
(The lovely tulips were courtesy of my FAB Hubby! Beautiful, aren't they! I LOVE Tulips!)
I made these yummy sandwiches for the girls (they included Red Peppers and Pineapple! Not kidding when I say YUM!)......
And of course these for dessert! Words that described the friendship I have with my dear dear friends in Sun Valley!
Looking at all of this also made me remember what my hubby was doing an hour before this lunch! He actually had to rent one of these little Bobcats to clear the snow so my friends would have a place to park! That was the year of the 6 feet of snow on the ground. We could wake up to a new couple of feet in the morning! I both miss and TOTALLY DON'T miss that! Let's just say my count down to Spring is coming 3 months earlier in Utah! :) And that is A.OK with me!
So, let's hear em! What are your favorite Valentines Traditions? Do you have any? Do you avoid the very idea of the day or is it one of your favorites?
