Do you do Valentines?

Social media is buzzing with good wishes, gift ideas and crafty activites for Valentines Day.  But we've never celebrated the occasion, even back in our dating days.  Each to their own though, I have lots of friends who do celebrate the day, and I don't want to take anything away from them!

Each year, in the lead up to V Day, Mr IndigoElephant reminds me that he hasn't gotten me anything, to which I reply that I haven't gotten him anything either! Almost as though we need to have the conversation, in case our expectations for the day might have changed from what we've done for the last thirteen-ish years.  If  I was doing something to mark the day, I'd want to make some of these...

The Smitten Kitchen White and Dark Hearted Brownies have been on my "to try" list for ages. Aren't they cute!! I will get around to making them someday... just not today as the sewing machine is calling me.  

I feel incredibly blessed to have a husband who demonstrates his love for his family every single day, in numerous ways.  Particularly over the last eight weeks, while I've been unbelievably nauseous and ill, he has taken on the full load of caring for us, doing all the meal planning & cooking, grocery shopping, cleaning (including when I couldn't make it to the bathroom before a vomit), all things related to the boys from bottom wiping, to entertaining, to baths & bedtime stories - literally everything. He's a treasure, and I'm so grateful he's my Mister!
