Yes, we have a crafty love fest going on in our multigenerational nest.
Without even saying it, we all decided to make our own love trinkets for each other. My 4-year-old was the only one requiring assistance, and everyone else pretty much worked on their lovely gifts alone.
This morning we stashed each family member’s gift in various areas of the house. This seemed to set the tone for a serene, easy-moving, and happy morning routine.
Love is in the air for us – and we hope you enjoy the quotes and songs we’ve selected to share with you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
