Richard and I have never been big on the commercial-ness of Valentine's day. We may go for dinner or exchange cards but if we don't it's really no big deal. When it came to my kids or now to my grandchildren, now that is completely another matter! This morning my mom (GG) and I headed to the dollar store and snatched up as much candies and trinkets that we could for the five little fellas! Once home I proceeded to bake some heart shaped brownies and while they were cooling I started to create the five little gift bags, While I was creating the "What did the fox say? Happy Valentine's Day" cards I knew I was enjoying this process way more than they would in receiving them. But it's all about taking joy in the process and taking joy in the journey and I must say I had fun!
And as a post script of sorts, 2 out of the 5 grandsons that received their loot so far absolutely loved it!
