Happy Valentine's Day!

Oh, how I love these two.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends! We've had a fun day so far. Emmett slept in until 7:15 this morning, so everyone is feeling rested! Ray is off work (doing some painting and other projects at our house. Pray it sells soon!), so we've been able to spend a little extra time with him today, which is always a treat. 

Emmett and I had a breakfast date at Chic-fil-a then went to the post office to mail our incredibly late valentines, and we've been baking every since. I'm hoping to make these beautiful cookies in time to drop them off at neighbors houses later! The dough is chilling in the fridge as we speak. I'll let you know how they turn out!

Valentine's Day always gets me thinking about love. There are so many types of love, and so many ways to show it. It has been on my heart lately to work harder at being love to the people in my life, so I always look for little things I can do to make people happy each day. It isn't always what I want to do, and it doesn't always come easy, but it makes me feel better in the end, as well as blessing those I love. 

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days. The flowers and the candy and the balloons at the grocery store are all pretty and fun and exciting, but it's the hugs from my husband and the sweet smiles from my Emmett that make it special. I'm overwhelmed today by how full our life is, how lucky I am to be living life as a mama and a wife to my boys, and how well God is taking care of us these days. Life is good and beautiful. Even in the hard moments.

I hope you are feeling loved today. I pray that God blesses each and every one of you, and shows you His love today. 

My little Valentine at breakfast this morning with his little Valentine, his Beloved, his "bibbit."


  1. God's blessings on your family too! And I'm a little insanely jealous that you had Chic-Fil-a this morning--I haven't had it in ages and used to eat there regularly when we lived in the south. Darn you Michigan!!! :)

    1. Thank you Jennifer! Oh you poor thing! I grew up in Georgia so Chic-fil-a is a staple in my life. Thank God Arizona has caught on! And a new one just opened near our house. :)

  2. Happy Valentine's Day! Glad it's been a good one.

    1. Happy Valentine's Day to you too! Did y'all have a fun day? Ours was good- not so much romantic- but full of love anyway. :)
