I am guessing it might have something to do with having children but I've really been getting into holiday decorating and baking lately. Valentine's Day has quickly become a favorite of mine (might have something to do with the years of living by Abby--- check out one of her Valentine's day posts here and a funny one here).
I started the holiday season by purchasing this precious heart garland at Target for $7 and hanging it on my mantel.
Abby is a favorite blogger of mine when it comes to life + faith +children. Another favorite is Tessa of Nine + Sixteen. She inspires me to get in the kitchen and not only bake but spice up our dinner rotation a bit. If you don't read her blog, you should. Here is the recipe I used for Valentine's cookies that we made to deliver to friends and family.
Freshly iced and starting to dry:
Packaged and ready to be delivered!
A friend sent me this yesterday of Collins passing out his valentines to his friends at school. Melts my heart.
We decided to go with glow sticks (from the Dollar Tree) instead of candy!
Happy Valentine's Day!
