Valentine's day recap.
Each of my kiddos received a mama-made message in a heart pillow. These smell so yummy because they are stuffed with buckwheat hulls and lavender.
I ended up writing each of the kiddos a larger love letter that didn't quite fit into this heart pocket. But I intend to use the pockets for shorter and more frequent "i love you's" throughout the year.
If you'd like to make one for your sweet, the tutorial for this pillow can be found in my circle of stones interview on Heather's lovely blog.
The boys loved their pillows.
The girl loved her pillow. (apparently, they make excellent dance partners)
I even spotted the pillows in use during a private brother conversation.
And then lovingly placed in a special spot.
It was a beautiful day filled with cooking and baking and the writing of many very special love notes. My kiddos peppered their notes to one another with phrases such as "i love you with all my heart" and "even though we fight I love you each and every single day." What more could this mama ask for?
The tulips were from my very special valentine - we later realized that this was our twentieth valentine's together. Hope you had a beautiful weekend.
Happy Tuesday every one! (feels like a Monday to me because of President's day)
