thinking about valentines

I figure now is a good time to start thinking about Valentines Day. I am not really sure what I am going to do this year though. I don't want to decorate yet but I should start thinking of what I want to do for the kid's class valentines. As many of you know we home-school, so by "class" I mean Sunday school class.
Above is a photo I took last year when we made cute heart shaped sugar cookies. They were super yummy!
Honestly though, I am not really feeling the love for Valentines this year. Probably because last year we had a Valentines tree and decorations up right after New Years and I started hating the holiday since it was up for so long. This year we didn't do a Valentines tree and its nice because the house feels clean and organized. :) Sorry, I don't mean to sound like I'm hating on Valentines I really love it I am just not ready to go full force filling my house with cupids and glittered hearts. I think minimalism is my Valentines motto this year. You know the 'less is more" route.

Ooooh - What a lovely idea :D

I'm a teacher and I have a group of mixed age pupis on Thursday for a one hour food Technology lesson.... I think I may get them to do something like this.

Thanks for sharing

I hear you LJ. I'm starting to get anti holiday trees for anything other than Christmas. I like Christmas being the only special holiday with a tree. I also like hearts all year round (hints my Lovely Love) and that just proves that you can embrace the holiday if love with class. You always do a great job.
