I’m the type of person that loves all holidays, and Valentine’s Day is a sweet one to me.
I always remember getting a stuffed animal, a mylar balloon and a box of chocolate growing up. It was something very special about this holiday for me.
As an adult with young kiddos I still love getting a little something, don’t get me wrong, but the days blend together and I long for fun experiences over more things. That said I have put together a short list of unique events for both couples and families (incase you don’t have a sitter 😉 ) to celebrate the holiday of love! I hope your day is a special one!
