For many years, Valentine’s Day wasn’t a big deal to me at all. In fact, it barely made a blip on my radar. As a single woman, I never had a reason to get excited about it. Actually, I felt that way about most holidays. They were just another day. When Ayva was born, and I realized all of the cute photo ops that each holiday presents…I turned into that mom. The one who sponsors the class party, who orders personalized photo cards, and plans for weeks what we are going to do special to celebrate!
