Happy Love Day!

Source
Interesting factoid. St. Valentine's Day was literally a holy day to honor the Catholic saint Valentine and others as martyrs. It didn't start gaining its romantic connections until the tradition of courtly love came about (1000-1300 AD). By the 15th century it had finally evolved into an occasion for lovers to express their love to each other! 600 years later, we're still celebrating love in its many forms between friends and family, and lovers, as well as celebrating our love for humanity!

I plan on celebrating with my son Gabe by cutting out hearts and drawing pictures on them. We'll give them to his friends and his dad tonight! Maybe we'll even go out for a Valentine goody!

I think we'll go all out next year with some house decor and maybe even some baking of cookies and crepes! We'll see.

Recipe!
 Go read up on Cupid and Psyche and show some love today!

  2. Gage and I crafted for the first time by having him put his yogurt (soy of course) handprint on paper and then I put them on a few cards. So far I really haven't gone all out for any of the holidays. Maybe when he's 2 or 3?
