Roses are red, violets are blue- I am so rubbish at writing rhymes, that’s why I can’t impress you! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.
I woke up this morning, saw a flower van outside and thought, a neighbour must be receiving flowers. Suddenly the door knocked and I ran excitedly to open it, revealing a big bunch of ivory avalanche roses (the same as the I had in my wedding bouquet). My husband is right here, but it felt nice that he had ordered flowers- made me smile.
We’ve always celebrated Valentines day- but this was our first as parents. The first gift I opened was from Kian to me. Thorntons Choc heart saying ‘Happy Valentines Day Mummy. Love Kian x’ (he had wrapped the gift bag around Kian’s hand so he was giving it to me himself!).
My husband always jokes with me that I am so awful at Maths- and it’s true I really am! As one of his presents to me he has organised a babysitter for us to go for date night at my favourite restaurant, and also our first family holiday! But I had to work out the value of the holiday with a Maths equation! (he said if I don’t get it in 2 goes then I don’t get the present! Thankfully I worked it out!).
I got my husband a handmade keyring with the 10th September marked out saying ‘the day you became a father.’ Got this from notonthehighstreet.com
Gifts and cards aside – the most important thing is valuing each other, being thankful and spending quality time together. I am thankful that he tries so hard to make me happy. That’s what matters. I am really looking forward to our first family holiday with Kian!
People say why should we celebrate Valentine’s Day- after all it’s important to show love everyday. Whilst that is unarguably true and also each to their own, I do think it’s nice to make your partner feel special and appreciated (whatever that looks like to you).
Have a beautiful day, whether single or in a relationship. Sending you all lots of love. xx M
