Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone out there! While this was never a favorite holiday of mine, it has grown on me substantially since I became a teacher. The magic of sharing valentines just shines with a new luster in the eyes of 7 and 8-year olds. We'll be having our Valentine's Day party today; decorating cookies, playing musical chairs, and delivering valentines to respective classmates. Looking forward to an afternoon of pink and red, and lots of sugar!

Last year we were in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over Valentines Day, but the year previous we V-Day dinner at our favorite gourmet burger place in Seattle, which was refreshingly low key but still fun and romantic. This year, he surprised me with a bouquet of beautiful flowers and a sweet card yesterday when I came home from running errands. We'll be doing dinner and a movie tonight, details TBD.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Not a favorite holiday of mine either, but your sugar-filled Valentine's party with the kids sounds brilliant.
