Mr B and I have never been into Valentine’s Day. We used to be of the opinion that love should be celebrated any day, that flowers are not only for Valentines and that a romantic dinner could be had any day of the year. That was before we had children. Before life, children, work and wash loads cut up with us.When you are tired and exhausted sometimes you need a little reminder that you need to make an effort and spend quality time together.
We started celebrating Valentine’s as a family few years ago. The boys were making cards and decorations in the crèche so we started making a little effort around the house and we have been building from there.
I love celebrating Valentine’s Day as a family. The kids get very excited and they love making decorations and it is just lovely having an excuse for treats, a little celebration and loads of cuddles.
This is a really nice tutorial about how to make these amazing cards for your Valentine.
As Valentine’s Day is Saturday this year and Saturday is pancake day in our house, these pancakes are perfect for the day. What do you think?
If you feel like buying a present or making one, you can personalise it with these super cute free Valentine’s gift labels printables.
You can make your romantic moments all the more special by making this heart bokeh.
