14 Days of LOVE – Day 1 Love Notes

It’s here!! It’s here!! February and the 14 Days of Love madness is finally here!!  I have so many exciting things lined up this year and I am just beside myself.  First up – Mailboxes filled with love – notes, that is.

It seems as though everyone’s love language in my house is “Words of Affirmation” except mine. So expressing love through words is very difficult for me.   It’s not that I can’t think of a million reasons why I love my husband, it just that I forget to actually TELL him!  Poor guy.   This is why I picked these adorable little guys  as my Day 1 – The more I do it (14 days straight) the less harder it will be to continue.  At lease that’s the goal.  We made these last year and they were so much fun.    *You can find them in the dollar bin at Target, but you better hurry.  I was there yesterday and there were only a few dozen left!

These were the perfect little reminder for me to tell my family in words what I personally love about each one of them.  Great for me and super uplifting for them!

Sooo what are you waiting for?  Go and get one for each of your family members right now, before they’re gone!  And have fun writing, and remembering, all the wonderful reasons YOU love them.  🙂

Gearing up – “14 Days of Love” is almost here!!

We did “14 Days of Love” leading up to Valentine’s Day last year and it was a blast.  Not only was it incredible fun for my sweet boy but I truly believe it was one of the things (in addition to some serious praying) that brought my husband and I out of a very long rut.  More on that later but for now here is a little re-cap of some of my favorites. (These were posted on facebook during my pre-blog days.)  

Valentine Mailboxes – Every day we would fill each other’s mailboxes with little notes. “You are my favorite Valentine because…”   We will definitely be using these again this year!  

Rice KISSpie treats – Alright this was probably one of my Hubby’s favorites – Braden doesn’t care for them too much (he’s weird, I know).  Still super fun to make though 🙂 

Love Muffin Pizza’s – Totally adorable and delish!

Heart Crayons – Braden still colors with his.  They were so cheap easy to make that we handed them out to all of his friends at church.  

Valentine – You ROCK! – I think I may have to upgrade this one to the iPhone this year. wink wink

Oreo Cookie Balls of HEAVEN! – OMG these are UH-MAZING!  Definitely making these again!

Sweet shovel

Candy grams – Probably my favorite.  However looking back now, I have no idea how I’m going to trump last years!  

This year’s will be packed full of some more “crafty” additions as well so stay tuned!  Here’s to a very Happy 14 Day’s of LOVE!!
