Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hope you all had a loved-filled day! Noel and I really don't celebrate Valentine's Day much anymore. We're pretty romantic throughout the year without dropping huge amounts of money on each other to prove it. (The kids tell us we're gross (ha ha). We used to do it all up, but with age comes wisdom! We celebrated by shopping together for a new kitchen one we love too!

Kelsey, on the other hand, is having her first real Valentine's Day with her boyfriend Allen. (They just missed it last year) She is making him a dinner that includes his favorite foods (steak and ribs) and has set the table to perfection. He already surprised her with flowers before their official date time. One thing she did that is so adorable is she filled a jar with little pieces of red and white paper, each one holding a trait about Allen that she loves. She decorated the jar with the words "why I love you" and added a red and white ribbon. So cute. Here's the jar:

Ahhhh....young love.

That jar is super cute, what a sweet, cheap and crafty way to say I love you!

Thanks! I think now that she's earning her own pay, along with having her own bills, she's learning to get creative! Hope she keeps it up. :)
