Happy Valentine's Day

Each year I color valentines for my kids.


I started six years ago. Ashley's first Valentine's Day with us. I wish I could say it was because I'm a creative and sentimental kind of mom, but it was because Ashley's adoption wasn't final and she was one tough cookie back then. Finding someone to watch her was a challenge.

So I improvised with this...


And then it just kinda became a tradition...


Until 2011when I forgot and ended up with this...


It's a good thing I had heart-shaped sticky notes.

I got back on track the following year...


And then there were three...


You'll notice each year they get a little smaller. It's because each year I get a little older.

I'm thankful I was unable to get out to buy valentines that year. Sometimes the best traditions come by accident.

Happy Valentine's Day!
