Spoiler Alert: You already have a Valentine.

Feb 1, 2016 by

February has arrived, and I’m downing Reese’s hearts as I write this. You guys, VALENTINE’S DAY IS COMING. I say this not to make you panic, and not to initiate the “UGH, I hate that Hallmark holiday” naysayers…but to let you in on a secret. Chances are very, very high that you already have at least one Valentine if you’re reading this. And chances are even higher that your Valentine(s) would love nothing more than to go all-out celebrating this day of love with you.

Need a Valentine? We’ve Got You Covered

Jan 21, 2016 by

Some of us (cough, cough) will be alone on Valentine’s Day this year. Valentine’s Day is actually my FAVORITE holiday because I view it as a celebration of ALL the love in my life. The day doesn’t necessarily have to be tied only to romantic love. I love to remind everyone in my life how important they are to me and Valentine’s Day is an extra special day to do that!

As an extension of our Hug-O-Grams, you can order yourself a Valentine’s Day card that will arrive from one of our CT Working Moms writers with a special personal note. For free. For realz. We are a community and a community supports its members. Feeling down about not having a significant other for V-Day? Don’t fret! Let us lift you up and remind you that you are loved.

Valentine’s Day in a Mason Jar

Feb 6, 2015 by

I have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day.  I think it’s totally sweet to celebrate love and romance, but spending $100 on a bouquet of roses seems more crazy than in-love! This year, I’m keeping V-Day simple and wrapping up some simple homemade gifts that cost a little more than a Hallmark card.  Here are a few ideas!

Layer your favorite candies in a mason jar: Hershey’s Kisses, Red Hots, candy hearts, M&M’s in a jar (put the Kisses on top so the other candy doesn’t fall between them!

Fun Valentine’s Day Activity (Starts Feb. 1st)

Jan 22, 2015 by

Last year I started a new Valentine’s Day tradition with my daughter. I was inspired by one of our writers (I think Elise) who did something similar for her child’s birthday.

Each day leading up to V-Day, starting on Feb. 1st, I would add a heart to my daughters bedroom door at night while she was sleeping. Each heart reflected something I love about her, ranging from things like “I love that you like animals” to “I love how kind you are.” It felt like a great way to reinforce positive attributes and each morning my daughter was excited to see what the next heart said!

An Apology Letter on Valentine’s Day

Feb 14, 2014 by

Ladies – I know a lot of you can relate to what I’ve been going through lately. A lack of energy, irritability and a never-ending to-do list can really cause us moms to be too tired after our kids bedtimes, that we basically fall asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow.  Even worse, we can become distant with our significant others, which takes a large toll on our already strained relationships. That being said, instead of giving my husband a traditional Valentine’s Day card this year, I gave him an apology letter right before bed, with sincere, raw wording that no Hallmark card could ever provide.
