Earlier today I asked what you did for Valentine’s Day so I thought I would share a few photos from our day yesterday.

Skylar went to a Valentine’s Day party with her friends and came home with a stash of cute things.

Earlier in the day, Scott had given me some cards.

I gave Skylar this little box of chocolates

She was excited about those!

Plus, we had exchanged (chocolate) gifts and cards over the weekend.  So there was no shortage of sugar Valentine’s Day spirit and lovin’ in our house.

Thanks for filling in me in from my earlier post about what you did to celebrate.  Or didn’t do.

And I am glad you enjoyed my recipe for the Curried Ginger & Raisin Lentils

Now if you’ll excuse me, my day is wickedly busy!

But I need to heat up some leftover lentils…

I don’t have any of these on hand, but wish I did!


1. Any Valentine’s Day recaps or stories that you’re dying to share?

Feel free!

2. Do you remember making arts and crafts projects in school?

I do and I loved them!  I wish I had more time when I was a child to simply make and create.  Rather than learn facts about George Washington or a war that was fought in Europe in 1653.   Didn’t care about it then as a kid, don’t care about it now.

I loved drawing, painting, woodworking, putting puzzles together, making beaded bracelets, you name it, I wanted to make things and be artsy-fartsy.   That kind of learning was way more fun to me than book learning!  We don’t just learn from books, we learn from experiencing the world, too.   That’s what unschooling is all about.

3. Did you get a workout in today?

I did.  A 20 Minute Run + 20 Minutes of yoga/lifting

Now it’s time to get everything else done around here!
