My Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is pretty much the theme of February (well, at least to me it is!) and since the lovey dovey day fell on a Sunday this year, I got to spend some quality time with family and my puppy dog – only the best a gal could ask for! Ever since I was little, I have spent this joyous day with family and along the way, we have created few traditions! Today, I am going to share with you some of those traditions and how I spent this love-filled day!

Roses

Growing up, my Dad always bought my Mom flowers (usually roses) for Valentine’s Day, as any loving husband does. When my sister and I got to a certain age, my Dad started to include us in the mix by getting us each a small bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day. Not that he ever needed to do that in order to show us how much he loved us, but it brightens our faces every time we wake up on the 14th of February! Thanks Daddy!

V-Day Drive 

What is the best way to spend quality time with the family? Why not a family drive through the country, ending with a little stop into our rental house. This is not apart of our V-Day tradition, but it is something that we thought would be really fun! Listening to music, grabbing lunch on the way and just being with one another made the day what it was (perfect!). It was a little chilly (-30 degrees, actually…), but still a great time spent!

Warming up with a Molten Chocolate Latte!

I do looove my Starbucks…so that was a necessary stop on our drive! All week I have been waiting to try the Molten Chocolate Latte for Valentine’s Day, so…that’s exactly what I did! I may have just started an addiction since it was SO UNBELIEVABLY GREAT! Yum, yum!

Treats for all!

This is one of my favourite traditions. Valentine’s Day has always been a day to show love and appreciation for everyone in our tight little unit! My Mom and Dad always make it a special day for my sister and I and whoever is in our lives at the time. I always look forward to candy hearts, big chocolate bars, and yes, even Frozen jelly beans (my favourite!!).

I hope everyone had an amazing day with all of their special someones and loved ones! Everybody deserves somebody to love and if you look out there, there is always someone smiling back at you returning your love. Whether it is your Mom, dog, hamster, or significant other…love fills the world every day!

    Those heart shapped glasses are adorable! I love how your styled them on your dog, hehe. I always try to get my dog to pose for a picture with my sunglasses on him but he doesn’t like it! Fashion just isn’t his thing I guess haha!
