I'm escaping this weekend.
The kids and I are taking off for my parents' place up in the mountains. My brother is joining us and we're going to enjoy a weekend with my mom and dad, who will probably enjoy spoiling their children just a little bit. And I don't mind that. Someone else doing the cooking? Okay! Champagne brunch on Valentines Day? Sure!
I've had fun buying a few fun things for the kids on Valentines Day. One of my favorite V-day memories was in Novato when my brother and I woke up to little goodies awaiting us at our breakfast table, so I'm doing the same for Charlie and Noelle this Sunday. Big heart shaped pillows...decorated place mats...mnm candies. Thank you Target! And thank you Mom for the idea that it would be fun for them to wake up to presents on the table this Sunday morning.
I hope you all enjoy your long weekend and have a loving Valentine's day. I know I will!
