a lovely valentine

February is an exciting month for me; my mom, my brother and I all have February birthdays and then of course there's Valentines Day. Now I know many people have anxiety and depression around this particular day but to me it is just so fun! I have always loved making valentine boxes for the Valentine exchange at school, biting into all of the chocolates in the big heart shaped box, and the cheesy play on words on all the cards. This excitement towards Valentines has been instilled in me by my mother, who decorated our house for Valentines right after taking down our Christmas tree. My favorite decoration that my mom pulls out each year is her vintage valentine collection- their sweet old fashioned pictures and sayings warm my heart. They are from a time where there was no pressure to buy overpriced flowers and jewlery, just a simple valentine card with a sweet message. What a lovely valentine.
