Post Valentine’s Day Post :)

I love the idea of Valentine’s Day.  I really do.  But my Love doesn’t really “DO” Valentine’s Day.  He acknowledges it.  There are the usual cards and gifts for me and the kiddos, but I know he’s not really into it.  I can respect that.  He DOES show me love every day of the year, but I told him it’s not just about THAT. 🙂

It’s about ROMANCE when it comes to your spouse or significant other.  It’s about taking a day and DEVOTING it to that special person(s) you love.  (I firmly believe that my children are the Valentine’s in our life, too.)  And my loving husband is okay with that.  He’ll go with the flow.  He’s just not, as I stated, INTO it as much as I am.

But this past Valentine’s Day was super special.  We planned it together and directed it towards our awesome daughter.  She often times is neglected in the shuffle of things and asked to be more grown up than she is.  She’s a trooper and she needed some special recognition on a special day.

And since Broadway musicals are my MOST FAVORITE thing to see…..I got my special treat on that same special day, too.  She grabbed her BFF, we went to a sit-down restaurant (Red Robin is as fancy as it gets since seven year old girls prefer McDonalds), went and saw Mary Poppins and had a sleep-over!  It was quite the treat for her, but for me, too.  We had a very nice Valentine’s Day. ❤

Hope you did, too!
