Happy Valentine's Day

Today is the day when we sing to each child and present a small gift that is either homemade by us, or a Waldorf inspired business on Etsy. 
Felted Gnome from the Jaunty Gnome 

Waldorf Boy Doll by Under the Bodhi Tree Designs

 Simple Love Song
I love Wilson, yes I do
He's the cutest boy I know
He's so handsome and so sweet
Singing to him is such a treat! (or substitute "singing" with "holding", "hugging", "kissing", etc.)

The children made caramel and felted hearts for their friends.

And watercolor cards for each other.

The night will end with a dinner featuring organic red strawberries, wild cherries and a berry smoothie!  Mommy and Daddy might take a little time to enjoy dessert out on the town.  We are so thankful for the love that we share on this special day of the year.

Beautiful gifts and beautiful traditions! You and your family are a great source of inspiration. (I love that doll!)

I shared some photos of our Valentine's Day breakfast today. My kids will get their other small gifts I made tonight.

I love this holiday -- It is what we make of it, and why not take every opportunity to share our love?
