Valentine's Day with the Valentines

When I started dating Spencer 10 years ago, there was a lot of pressure celebrating Valentine's Day. I mean, when your last name is the holiday, you feel like you have to go all out. With buying a house in two weeks, we decided to keep this year low key. We spent the afternoon with Finnegan, trying on dad's hat

and making impressions of his tiny foot. Note the gap between his toes. He gets that from his mom.

Our eighth wedding anniversary was in December, and Spencer and I have tried to keep with the giving of "traditional" anniversary materials. Eight years was bronze, so Spencer gave me a kit to make impressions of Finnegan's hand and foot. We finally got to the foot on Valentine's Day. It was a special way to spend the day and one we'll always be able to remember. I hope to make Valentine's Day special for Finnegan, and he enjoys having the last name Valentine on February 14.

Hope you had a chance to flirt with the ones you love!
