My Funny Valentines

I was a working mom for 5 years,  traveling often left me distracted from the details of motherhood.  This is the first year I’ve had the mental clarity + time to really do something special for the holidays. Christmas is a given, I always jumped all in for that one, but the others fell by the wayside. We are coming up on Valentines Day and I felt like it was time to take full advantage of the fact that I’m home full time. “Homemade” Valentines +  decorations made me feel like I’ve hit a momentary stride in this new role.

In years past I wouldn’t decorate, do anything homemade or get ahead of the classroom Valentines Day party. True story, one year I forgot to get a Valentines Day box for my sons preschool celebration.  I did what any good mother would do, I went to Target, bought a piñata and called it a day.  It was a win in my book! It looked just as good as all the over the top homemade valentines day boxes.

When The Ever Co. announced they had customs valentines, I had to jump on it! My guy will have unique cards with witty + fun sayings and I get to feel like I did something extra special. This is the last week to order their Valentines for just $2.99! You get all 8 designs for boys and girls.

I sent mine to staples and picked them up an hour later. We came home and put his friend’s names on them, I felt so ahead of the game this year.

Good thing, shortly after printing them the stomach bug hit and we haven’t had time for much of anything. Can winter be over yet, gosh! Anywho, go check them out! Make sure to tag @theeverco and @thewildrevival on Instagram, sharing how you made Valentines Day extra special this year.

Valentine’s Day is on it’s way!

 

We have to say we are so happy to be waving goodbye to January and see Valentine’s Day around the corner. January is the in-between month: the post-Christmas lull and cold temps don’t leave us excited to get moving for the day! 😉

 Valentines Day Kids Decor

To help us feel the love that is February, we are sharing a sneak-peek at some of the elements we are looking forward to using for our upcoming photo-shoot with the girls. Give us all the hearts, pinks, tutus & reds with a bit of sparkle.

There is something about having a daughter that makes me a little more apt to decorate for all the seasons. Marrissa has always been festive and I’m excited to join her in decorating our home this Valentine’s Day.

 

 

The best part is you don’t have to break the bank to bring a little holiday vibe to your mantle, kids’ room or your dinner table. A simple trip to the dollar spot at the Target will do the trick.  It can be overwhelming to see all these perfectly-styled homes. So keep it low pressure & fun! We don’t do these things for show; we do them to build memories for our children.

If the flowers are from the dollar spot or you cut hearts out of construction paper, it won’t matter. What matters is that you’re making memories.

I love that Marrissa rotates books on her shelves to match the season. (Would you believe the shelves are just Ikea spice racks painted white?! Thanks, Pinterest!) I just have all of our books in a book box– pulling out what we need when we need it. Leaving them out and coordinating with the holiday helps add a whimsical touch of the season to the room with little to no added expense.

What are some ways you incorporate the holidays into your everyday decor? Do you like to celebrate every holiday or stick to the majors? We would love to hear from you in the comments!
