I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. I do love getting flowers, but when you live in the frozen north, it just feels weird to see color in February. Brown, white, and blue are the only colors in nature right now. Spring feels a long way off.
Luckily, Jesse's not so great at Valentine's Day either (or Ben and Yuki, or Enoch and Amy which was a relief since we were all together). The past two years we've had a special candle lit dinner for the girls. But this year we celebrated my mom's birthday. Which was special since it was her 7-0.
So this year there were no flowers or chocolates, or even cards (I meant it when I said we really blew it!). But I had my awesome husband helping me, centering me, reassuring me amidst the fun and chaos that comes with a big group of people, a couple of big events, and a trip to the er. I think it was the best Valentine's Day yet.
