Hello, my friends,
Today I am not sharing a recipe, but instead, I am sharing an experience! Valentine’s day is coming up and I love and hate the holiday. I will start with the hate just to get those bad feelings out! I hate it because I simply feel the pressure of needing to be with someone when I am just fine by myself. All the flowers, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, cards, etc… I want them all!!! However, they are just objects.
I love that the holiday exists because it is kind of a reminder to let your loved ones know that you’re thinking of them. Sure we can celebrate love any time of the year, but the reality is that sometimes we forget how to do that. Sometimes we get so caught up being busy with life that we do not always express our love for others.
Anyway, I want to share with you my experiences with you all and just let you know that Valentine’s Day is not only for couples but for everyone who wants to spread some love. And why not spend the time with someone you love, like a sibling, cousin, friend, or parent.
I love to spend with my daughter, she is always teaching me new things every day and it is the most wonderful thing ever. We decided to bake sugar cookies, decorate, and eat them together. She is only 3 years old, but she is quite the helper.
Michelle loves to mix together all the ingredients, she really takes charge of her job as a baker. Depending on what we bake she will always ask for her own piece of dough so that she could shape it the way she likes. And sometimes, she just likes to smack it and not do anything!
Spending time with my daughter doing something we both like is a lot of fun and it is the best experience ever. That is what really matters when it comes to holidays, spending quality time with your loved one and it does not need to be extravagant.
Here is our final product!
It does not matter what you do as long as you tell your loved ones that you love them. This Valentine’s day is about everyone and spreading the love! Just like that one song from That’s So Raven, “Can you feel it? Can you feel the love, nothing feels better than feeling the love…” Haha
Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful day!
