Do you want to know what is going to be the death of me?
Valentine's candy corn.
Seriously, candy corn is best left with just one holiday per year, Halloween! You eat a handful or two because, you know, Halloween only comes once a year, but then suddenly, Bam!, there they are again at Valentine's in all there red,pink and white sugary goodness. And you are powerless. Just done. The candy corns win!
I do think, though, that the Valentine's candy corn is the only thing that got me through the massive homemade Valentine's creating session with my 4 kids.
The pictures are lovely and idyllic, everyone is helping.
But, what you fail to see in the photos is those 4 children going to bed at some point and me there at the dining room table late at night, by myself, finishing up exactly 84 homemade Valentine's!
I bought myself some flowers about a week ago, red tulips! And they were a beautiful gift to remind me that even though I was freezing to death in our colder-than-normal-winter, spring would come. And then today, finally we had a beautiful, fairly warm afternoon. I do hope we've seen the last of winter!
Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!
