Valentines Day started off a little rough. We had had very little sleep for days and days so I was beyond exhausted. The kids were not phased and enjoyed cuddling next to Laura.
We hosted a little preschool party at our house. The kids made and exchanged their homemade valentines with each other (except Nathan kept his), played duck-duck goose, and enjoyed Emily and Nathan’s favorite treat – frozen chocolate chips, peas, and pepperoni.
In the afternoon Andrew took the kids to the library so I could try and sleep. I rested for a little while and then decided to pull myself out of bed and make dinner. I had grand plans for the day that got seriously down-graded. I did manage to use our nice plates to make the meal a little special and write notes for everyone to read during dinner.
Laura surprised me with a hug! What a perfect Valentines gift.
Andrew surprised me with a proofing basket to make our sourdough bread even better.
It was a simple day, but it was a good reminder for me to dig deep and enjoy the people I love most.
