Valentines Day! Reach Out To Others

Valentines Day is one of those holidays that has gotten lost in translation. As I sat assembling Landon's Valentines to give to his class last night, I kept thinking: Valentines Day is not just for kids!

It's cute to see kids think of their classmates and give them a little token of friendship, but I think the magic of Valentines Day is really to reach out to others. I know you know someone, who is going through a divorce, a break up, a terrible time in their lives, who could really use a card or a call. Valentines Day is the perfect time to show that you really care about them.

This year I am going to reach out to some neighbors and friends who might need a little pick me up. It's amazing, by letting someone know that you care, how much better you can make them feel.

The Mr. and I are spending Valentines Day in this year as usual. We hate to fight the crowds and would rather have a fabulous night at home. I'll post about it on Monday!

Thank you to everyone for their sweet comments about my nanny situation. I am slowly but surely coming out of the fog and into the light!

Great idea! During my single days, a good guy friend would call all his single girl friends and wish them a happy Valentine's day. I always thought that was the nicest thing.

Just read your nanny post....oh girl, do I have a story for you! Email me and I will dish.

I know I have been super careful who I let into my house - it's amazing how little we know about people.

You need to have this nanny charged so she will have a police record and you will prevent her from violating another family.

What a nice idea! People always like to be thought about.

We always stay in on Valentine's Day, too. I am working on making the whole day fun for everyone...

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day. And thanks for the insight. I do know some people that might especially need some love and friendship on Valentine's Day!
