It was two days before Valentine’s Day and I had an epiphany. I have a child now. Not that that was news to me, rather it was that I realized I have a legitimate excuse to have free reign on the house when it comes to decorating for holidays. Even if Baby Opal is only two weeks old, she needs a proper Valentine’s Day.
I scoured Pinterest and rummaged through my craft supplies and box of miscellaneous paper and ribbons to see what Valentine’s decor I could cut and paste together. Then I found this adorable banner, which was my jumping off point, and the creative juices began flowing in red and pink.

When the 14th finally arrived, we had big plans for Valentine’s Day breakfast, special dessert, gifts, etc. Instead our Valentine’s Day looked a lot like this . . . . .
We had upset tummies, a cranky baby all day, a blowout in our Valentine’s Day heart gown, and a meltdown when it was time to open gifts.
But we didn’t let it get us down. The next day, we just had an extra day of love, a Valentine’s Day do-over.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
