With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to spread some love and celebrate the special people in our lives! Whether it’s your significant other, family members, or cherished friends, there’s no better way to show you care than with heartfelt finds.
Creating Heartfelt Creations
I’ve made some new creations around my favorite shape for the shop-hearts! Each heart-themed item I hope warms the hearts of loved ones.
I love how the heart design/shape is a quick way to represent love, kindness, and joy. For this Valentine’s Day, I hope you are inspired to celebrate love in your own unique way. Whether it’s a special gift you’ve found or a heartfelt DIY creation, every gesture counts to show love to those you care about.
3 Ways to Show Love Within a Family
As we are in our busy basketball season as a family, it feels like we are all going in different directions and just scrambling to keep up with schedules daily. Even in this season, I want to be intentional with showing my family they are important to me. Often it is little gift pick ups or adding their favorite snack to my groceries. It is also just going back to the basics, so let’s take these ideas listed below, as going back to the basics for both you and I.
- Express Gratitude: Say “thank you” and show appreciation for even the smallest acts of kindness or assistance. When I only have to ask one time for the trash to be taken out, that means a lot. In the same way, when we get the text that a kiddo is ready to be picked up from a team dinner, and my 16 year old jumps up to be the chauffeur without being asked…I am super thankful, so I say it.
- Help Out: Pitch in with household chores or tasks without being asked, showing that you’re willing to lend a hand and make life easier for everyone. All my kids/husband are way able to pack their own school/work lunches, but I still do it. I know it means something to them, and I have the time. I just have written into our family values that is my love letter to them everyday. They know it. I don’t write cute lunch box notes anymore, but the lunch itself is their note.
- Share Laughter: Find moments to laugh together, sharing jokes, funny stories, or just enjoying each other’s company. Lazy weekend days are my favorites. I look forward to them. Matt and I are drinking coffee in what we call our “snow room” and one by one a kiddo wakes, slips in, and we just are hanging out as we start our day.
There’s no better feeling than spreading love and making someone smile. I hope you too are able to be find windows to be intentional with those you love this Valentine season. If you need a card or small gift to help you, I have some good ones listed online.
In it with you,
