We don’t have any Valentine’s traditions at our house, no cute breakfasts, nothing—kind of weird when I think about it!! We just try to be nicer and write a little note to each other. I don’t dislike Valentine’s Day, but I really dislike the time of year it is—couldn’t it be in July?? So the only thing I worry about on Valentine’s Day, or really any day lately—is just making dinner at all!!
I’ve got the winter blues—which has happened to me every winter since I was little. Some years are worse than others, depending on how many gray days we have. It does help tremendously that I live in the South and generally get a whole lotta sunshine. But if we happen to have a few gray days in a row—I am toast!! My husband knows this about me, and is great to step up and cook and do things that just seem so overwhelmingly difficult when I’m struggling with the winter blues.
So I AM going to make dinner tonight, even though I have two sick kiddos who are pitifully miserable today!! I feel bad for them. But the sun is out, so I am going to just do it and make today work!! My favorite thing about Valentine’s day is that it means that February is almost over and that means Spring is on its way!!
I did manage to hang my valentine’s day bunting that I made last year….
I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day without any gray!!
