Valentine’s Day is actually one of my favorites! For the past nine years, Stewart and I have celebrated by making an extravagant fondue dinner. It’s a night of sipping wine, cooking dinner, and gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. Well, at least it was. Now it’s more like… crap I still need to go to the store to get the ingredients to make fondue or… Quick pour me a glass of wine so it’s out of my system by the time I feed Gracie or… Turner stop stealing the cheese off the counter, I need that for the fondue! Oh and how about, Turner stop playing with the fondue fork because it’s really sharp! TURNER…ONE, TWO, THREE! But that never stops us from making it a special night!
I love our new traditions though. This week was full of Valentine’s festivities! I even found the cutest outfits at the Gap. Dressing a girl is seriously fun!
Turner and I made whoopie pies for his class, which actually turned out to be a major parent fail resulting in me baking brownies to replace the soggy whoopie pies at 9:30 at night. But it was fun baking together!
So, all in all, it was an eventful, yet different Valentine’s Day. It gets more special as we create new memories together as a family. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
