I realize a lot of people tend to brush Valentine’s Day under the rug, but I am personally a big fan. I’m a sucker for love – I love love, and now that I am a mom, I have even more reason’s to celebrate.
Since my husband and I are in a season of growing our family, we don’t usually have a ton of one-on-one time; and when we do finally get a few minutes to ourselves, we typically just sit quietly next to each other and let our brains turn to mush (which is actually really fantastic). While being a parent to two kiddos, ages two and under, can be absolutely exhausting, it has also been the funnest time of my life.
I don’t know what it is about having children, but when they’re around it forces you to see things with a childlike mentality. Every holiday, every adventure, every event is almost like you’re experiencing it for the first time all over again. It also doesn’t help that I really like going all out for just about everything. I just want to create awesome special memories for our littles…even if they may not remember it.
