Valentines Exchange

I'm super excited to stop in & share some pictures from a fun Valentines exchange the girls and I did to kick off February.  We paired up with some of our favorite blog friends across the country (and Canada!) to swap Valentines with our little ones.  We love fun mail and this was some of the best!


The girls had the absolute best time breaking into their envelopes with all their treats, it was pure craziness for me (everything in Avalon's mouth, Waverly hiding the rest so no one found it!), but well-worth it.  I hate that I don't have pictures of the actual Valentines to share, but you can check out the blogs below for some great ideas if you are looking for something for your little ones to hand out last-minute this week.

For our Valentine, we headed to Target.  Obviously.  I wanted to find something that could work for both girls & boys, and these heart sunglasses were perfect!!  I made a printable to go along with it and hole-punched it to tie the glasses on, super easy and fun for the little ones.  Waverly has her class party today and we are also handing these out to her little friends, she is so excited about it and had so much fun picking who got what color! 


The biggest thank you to our friends who sent us the sweetest packages for Valentines Day.  It was such a fun way to celebrate February!  XO

PS - The girls chairbackers are on sale today from Pottery Barn!  I love them, they really are so much fun to bring out each year.  Also, thank you to Ellia May Designs for the cute, cute bows!
