January is always kind of a sad month. All of the Christmas decorations are down, and the house always looks so empty and boring. It gets kind of depressing. Our house especially looks boring because we are 5 (!!!!) days away from moving. It has me dreaming of decorating our new place for Valentine’s Day.
I know, I know. Valentine’s Day is cheesy and corny and stupid. Well, I don’t agree with that. I think it is fun to have an excuse to shower the people I love with fun gifts. I have always enjoyed every holiday, even the ones without any real significance. I have been scouring Pinterest for activities that I can do once we move. Honestly, when we realized that we were facing the possibility of moving in with family, I was the most sad about not having my own space to decorate. That is pathetic. But, we are no longer facing that. 🙂
I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to Valentine’s Day. Crafts, decorations, and festive snacks fill this board with inspiration. I really want to make these truffles for Scott. These are our favorite truffles to make, and I have never thought about making them into shapes!
These bird feeders would also be fun to make with the girls. I’m also thinking about doing this for the girls. Though, we will be traveling the 1st and 2nd, and I am afraid that the hectic-ness of the move is going to get in the way. Maybe next year. It would be sweet to do any time though! This math station would also be a fun way to blend the holiday with homeschooling.
Do you love Valentine’s Day, or is it just a dumb holiday to you? I won’t be offended if you feel the opposite way that I do. 😉
And, just for fun, here are some throwback Valentine’s pictures from years past.
This was last year. Taking pictures gets more and more interesting.
