Those of you who've followed me since the beginning of my blogging days or who know me in real life know that I am not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. I never have been. I'm simply a believer in celebrating love - all types of love - year round. I say "I love you" often, and I mean it.
But yesterday was special. It was fun to dress K up in her Valentine's Day outfit and see her school decorated for the occasion. However, the best part came at the end of the day when we picked her back up and had a Valentine waiting for us in her folder.
No amount of jewelry, candy, or flowers could make me feel the way seeing this piece of paper did. It was such an amazing reminder of how lucky I am to be her mother, and how much I want every person in this community to experience this same feeling.
