Happy Love Day!
Happy LOVE day! That's what Zoe wrote on the Valentine's Day card she made for me. It was a lovely day, and I hope yours was, too. In addition to Zoe's card, Maya gifted me with a poem far nicer than last year's "Roses are red, violets are blue, you're a terrible mother and I HATE you (long story)." Obviously inspired by the children's book Love You Forever (a book I can't read to my kids without tearing up), this year Maya said, "I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I'm living, my Mommy you'll be!"
I think most people think of Valentine's Day as a romantic holiday, but I consider it a celebration of love of all kinds (probably because my life is sans romance these days!). So I thought I'd round up some previous posts about love. If you have nothing better to do this Valentine's Day, I'm sorry, but I hope you'll enjoy!
