Valentine’s Day tends to be overshadowed in our house.  The boys’ birthday is on February 15th, so we are usually knee deep in birthday preparations or parties on Valentine’s Day.  But, I still want to show some extra sweet love to the boys, and Natalie, during the month of February.  We started the 14 Days of Love on February 1, and we’ve been going strong every since ! Although, we are still a week from Valentine’s Day.  But, I wanted to share this with you, in hopes that you can start this fun tradition in your house for the next 7 days.  On Valentine’s Day, we’ll culminate with a gift card to their favorite place as an extra special treat.
