Happy Valentine’s Day!


I used to teach in an elementary school. Valentine’s Day was always my favorite party. There was no stress of costumes and there was no “we’re about to have a two week holiday break” vibe. It was a low-key party with treats and tiny cards. I loved it.

I am not in the classroom this year, so I think I went a little crazy with the whole heart thing. I ended up making tiny heart shaped apple pies, heart shaped tandoori chicken naan pizzas, and a pepperoni pizza with heart shaped pepperoni. It was fun to use kitchen scissors to cut hearts big and small.


For this year’s gift I re-used some materials. I used a frame that was already in our house, paper a friend gave me, and a bag from a restaurant to wrap it. The only thing I bought was the paper for the background and the maps. The hearts represent were the boy and I both grew up and the center heart represents our first home. Awe. ❤


In an extra cheese-factor move, I have included the picture of the card for him from our cat, as well as how he used the wrapping to decorate our kitchen.

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!!
