Happy Valentine's Day

When you are in love you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
~ Dr. Seuss.

Given all the Dr. Seuss books we're reading and the lack of sleep we tend to be getting these days, this seemed like the perfect quote to celebrate Valentine's Day at the Ryan's. While I'll be keeping it low-key today with plenty of cuddles with the little man all day and a late post-HP's bedtime supper and glass of vino with my hubby, we did make sure to exchange love notes with HP's little friends last week.  

One of the many fabulous mommies I know hosted a playdate at her place last week where she had the most delightful spread of pink lemonade, red berries, and pink frosted treats. HP enjoyed the strawberries the most, while momma 's sweet tooth prevailed and the sweet iced short breads were tops for her. We also traded valentine's amongst the kidlets. There were cards and photos and word art with hearts and Winnie the Pooh for valentines HP. For his little friends I made these sweet little valentines:

I used pre-made felt hearts and birdies, mounted them on white cardstock along with a few strips of valentine-themed tape. Letter stickers personalized the notes and a greeting was stamped inside. Quick and easy, but special greetings for special little people.

And of course, if you're so inclined to share the love for my little man today you can head on over to the Bellies and Bundles facebook page and click like on his photo. He's in the V-day contest over there and, though biased, I think he's about the cutest little cupid there is:

I hope you all have a love-filled and peaceful day.
Happy Valentine's Day.
