At the risk of having my woman card stripped, I'm being completely honest when I say that I never have been a fan of Valentine's Day.  Yes, it's nice to get flowers + chocolate, etc., but I really believe that every day should be used to show those around us that we love them.  Right?

That being said, V-Day grew in meaning for me in 2017.  My daughter's first Valentine's Day.

Growing up, my mom would always have a little something for us, and there would be cards and goodies to pass out at our school party.  We even had a coinciding week dedicated to a “secret friend” exchange.  It was exciting and all, but, was it really necessary?

Since it isn't really a true holiday, and since my husband is in school (final term, yay!), I'm brainstorming for inexpensive or free ways to celebrate the day of love.  Who knows, maybe you'll create a lasting tradition.
