Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love Valentine's Day and with it being on a weekend this year it makes it so much easier to spend it with those we love, I'm definitely happy to be surrounded by my family today.

My husband and I always get each other a card and sometimes we'll get a gift or have a takeaway if our bank account is looking healthy enough.  This year with the extra costs that a baby brings we've just bought cards.  I also buy the children a card and a little chocolate heart because I believe that today isn't just for lovers, it's for showing someone you love that, well, you love them!  Obviously I tell my family that I love them every single day but I think it's great to have a special day to celebrate our love because we're all so lucky to have each other.

I know couples who don't bother with Valentine's Day at all, those who go all out and spend a lot of money on it, those who are like us and do cards and gifts when they can afford it and even those who buy their pets a card!

However you celebrate, I hope everyone enjoys this special day and I'd love to hear about your Valentine's so please feel free to comment below.

Hubby surprised me with these beautiful flowers, I hadn't expected a present so I returned the favour by making him a special Valentine's Day coffee (he prefers coffee to flowers anyway).
