If you caught my recent Target decor post, you’re probably sensing that I’m all in for Valentine’s Day this year. 🙈
I’m really trying to make things feel special and happy and exciting for the girls now that Christmas is over and there’s so much uncertainty. (I don’t think Emma truly understands what’s going on in our country right now, but I do think she can sense that we’re sad.)
I’ve honestly been pretty worried about Emma; Lucy’s spent nearly half her life in quarantine and she’s happy as a clam just playing and being with us. But Emma sees so few people—I honestly can’t remember the last time she saw a friend outside of FaceTime—and Christmas was getting her through. We recently made the tough decision to not send her back to school with the (very small) first wave of students out of respect for the teachers, who aren’t comfortable returning. And while she’s still smiling and laughing, I do think that it was hard for her. I know it was for us! Valentine’s Day, though, is something to look forward to. Mini celebrations are everything this year. :)
Okay, sorry. I just re-read that and I’m sounding like a real downer, haha. ♥️ YAY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY! ♥️ (But seriously. 😆)
Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and even PBTeen all have cute Valentine’s Day decor at the moment. Now that we’re in our permanent home, I’m trying to add a few things every year to our “mini holiday” decor collections. I remember my mother pulling out her own collections every season and seeing the same things year after year was very comforting! And bring on the comfort.
Also, a few Valentine’s Day crafts I’ve enjoyed lately with the girls are below. (So much Valentine’s Day cheer can be created out of what you likely already have in your home!)
Okay, bye. 😉
