Home traditions adding our traditional Valentine’s love to the kitchen

adding our traditional Valentine’s love to the kitchen

by Shawni

For those who are new here, each year leading up to Valentine’s Day we “heart attack” our kitchen.

We cut out hearts and fill them up with love we have for each other and then plaster them all over the kitchen to surround us all Valentines season.

Usually they are pink and red (very traditional valentines stuff over here).

But this year, since it was only me and Lu home to work on those suckers (sad stuff right there…even Claire and Dave were gone to Claire’s volleyball tournament), we decided to take the liberty to go crazy and do all kinds of colors.

We are wild right? Ha!

I took these pictures before Claire’s hearts were added, (which we need to bulk it up…not a whole bunch of people living in town these days!), but you get the idea.

Some of Lucy’s sweetie-pie notes:

Usually the things we love are expressed in just a few words, but Lucy takes the liberty to really go for it, and I love it.

Other years filled with kitchen valentines:

Love from ELEVEN years ago

I love all the ideas you post. It takes an army to raise resilient and strong children. We all need all the tips we can get! Thanks for sharing your precious family moments. Even as my kids have started to grow up, it’s still something I love to do that hopefully, they will remember fondly!

Side note: where did you get your floor plans? I love love the layout of your home!!
Thanks!!

We came up with them from lots of different sources, and had an architect help us put them together.
