Since we were in the third grade and made Valentines mailboxes so our classmates could slip in notes of friendship and puppy love, I've always loved the idea of a Valentine being something you share with people dearest to you. While I'm not the biggest fan of Valentine's Day, I always like to create little love notes to send. Whether its a delicately cut paper heart or a simple hand-made card, to me a Valentine is full of good thoughts and hopeful wishes.
Here are the Valentines I'm sending this year to my family. Being a little further away, it's nice to be able to send them something they can open with a smile and know I'm thinking of them! I hope you enjoy them too!
