love is sweet (valentine's day video)

It's almost Valentine's Day! I think it's safe to say that for the most part, people usually love or hate Valentine's Day. I say that, but I don't fit into either category. We don't go out on Valentine's Day--who wants to deal with the crowds anyway! And we don't do gifts. (Although, if he wants to buy me chocolate or ice cream, I won't object ;) hint, hint) But I do love spending the days leading up to Valentine's Day by making it special for the kids--cutting their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches into hearts (which has turned into a year round event), using pink food coloring in all kinds of stuff, and just throwing in as much of the pink/red/heart stuff as possible.

This past week, I learned about Personal Capital. They're a company all about helping people better manage their money with free financial tools and wanted to raise awareness about how to make someone feel special without breaking the bank. This is not a sponsored post but I did think it would be fun to join in because that's exactly what we already aim to do--show our love without spending a ton of money to do it. 

I asked the kids what they thought about making cookies and Valentine's cards for their BFFs and making a little video about it. They were super excited. What they loved best of all is that the video was going to show them doing everything "all by themselves." And minus needing my help to measure a few things, they really did do it by themselves.

So hopefully this video shows you that you don't need to spend a lot of money to make someone feel loved. Sometimes all it takes is a little thought and sugar ;)
