Valentine’s Day is around the corner.

Thank you for supporting mom-owned businesses like Making Spirits Bright: One Book at A Time!

I have fond memories of Valentine’s Day. My mom made it a big deal with red hearts everywhere and a few special gifts. I started the tradition of a Fancy Family Dinner a few years back around the holidays but moved it to Valentine’s Day after a friend suggested making it more meaningful when it wasn’t among the hustle and bustle of December. I put on a fancy dress, I get the kids dressed up (Baby Boy has a tuxedo onesie for this year’s dinner) and I make a special dinner at home. Check out my Pinterest Board for more ideas on making this a special holiday!
