Just last year we were celebrating Maxwell’s first Valentine’s Day (he was 11 months old), and now we’re celebrating with new baby Natalie? Life, you are crazy awesome. I feel so blessed to be mama to these two children. It’s a real honor to be raising them with Zack. Some of my favorite moments right now are how often Natalie smiles and chit-chats (surprise, surprise?) and the personality Maxwell has developed. I have to keep an eye on him though, he is very determined to “ho chew” (“hold you”).
Pear Tree Greetings, our long-term sponsor and friend, has a really fun selection of Valentine’s Day photo cards. These heart-shaped cards are darling and are such a fun size, but I also love the polka-dot detail on the backside of these cards. In the end I decided to order this textured heart design. Yay!
I remember decorating brown paper bags in Elementary School and taping them to the back of my chair. My goodness, that was over twenty years ago! After lunch my classmates and I would go around the room delivering our Valentines and a little piece of candy. I always loved celebrating holidays at school because they usually involved some sort of craft and snack ;) Pear Tree Greetings even has a fun selection of smaller-sized Valentine’s Day cards for kids to deliver to their classmates or playgroup friends.
Max and Nat aren’t in school yet, but they made a little list of family and friends to mail a Valentine’s card to. Now if only they could hand-address them!
Pear Tree Greetings would like to offer one lucky Maggie Whitley Designs reader a set of 32 Valentine’s Day cards (including envelopes and free shipping), a $50 value. Simply use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. This giveaway will end tomorrow so the winner has time to order and receive their PTG cards in the mail. I’m so glad you’re a part of this community, and I hope you win! :)
PS. I tucked away a card for each of their baby books. Having tangible memories from when our children are little is something I cherish.
Thank you for supporting the shops that help support me and my family.
