St. Valentine Views

These are a few of our St. Valentine views!
We have the tradition of eating heart-shaped pizza for dinner...
Courtesy of our local take-and-bake!
Each child gets a Valentine poster, listing all the ways we love them.
We gather for dinner and a blessing.
A little bag of hearts goes around the table, each one with a different scripture about love written on them.  We each take turns reading the different "love" scriptures.
We are reminded of the true source of our love!
It's a special time to gather around the family table.
This year we missed "Dad" on duty at the Fire Department!

But we made the best of things, like fire families often do.
We followed our dinner with a story about St. Valentine himself…It's one of our absolute favorites! I highly recommend if you don't already have it:)

What a cherish moment captured having our oldest read to the youngers:)
These are a few of our favorite St. Valentine views!
"The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart."


  1. Hope you are feeling better!! Your St. Valentine's Day looks magical. I love the candy bar notes- we so stealing that idea for next year. My kids would think that is great!!

  2. I look forward to celebrating next year...not feeling well puts a damper on things. I fight that feeling of guilt for having had a temporary hiatus from most fun things and liturgical things around the house. But, this is just a season of life that will pass :)

  3. I was sick with the flu this year.:(
    I love the idea with all the candy bars on the posterboard. So cute! You have such beautiful and inspirational ideas! God bless and I hope you feel better soon! ;)

  4. What a beautiful way to celebrate St Valentine's day!! You always inspire me!!
