Baby, I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song,
You right me when I’m wrong,
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you.

Happy I Love You Day is here! My little kidlets made it all the way till after breakfast before swapping their sweet little Valentine cards with us and each other…and we already had to get into the cupcakes, as soon as breakfast was over 🙂
And before the giant, teen-aged boy left for school this morning, I slipped a little booklet of Valentine jokes in his lunch. Oh, and marshmallows (we’re not sure who’s kid he really is, he doesn’t like chocolate!).
And I made cute Happy I Love You Day cards, stuffed into an envelope with some Valentine joke bookmarks and mazes and coloring pages, and actually mailed them out ahead of time for the kids! We’re gonna sneak out to the mailbox and put ’em in there so the kids get mail today. How fun is that! I almost never get things done ahead of time like that, lol.
If you haven’t gotten in the spirit of things before now, it’s not too late. Plenty of Valentine lovey-dovey fodder around. These cuppie cakes were super easy, just used the FunFetti cake mix and baked them in the flat, cake cones. Don’t over-fill them, though, or they will overflow all over the place (yes, I did get one whole tray of them like that).
Or make a Valentine card…plenty of cute things around on the interwebs. We’ve posted ideas the past two weeks, and you can still check out some of the lovies we posted last year. Write a love letter to your loved one, to yourself, to the world…make a journal page with hearts…write a love poem or haiku…recite some Shakespeare…watch a romance…listen to a love song or two…Just feel the love!
I hope you feel the love today. That’s what it’s all about. And know that here, someone is thinking of you, as I think of you to whom I am writing, all of the time!
