How Do I Love Thee?

Let me count the ways.

I stole borrowed this idea from of Tara of Feels Like Home.  For the next 14 13 12 11 days counting down to Valentine’s Day, I will be filling my daughters’ hearts and mini-mailboxes with love.


 How Do I Love Thee?

 How Do I Love Thee?


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

      I had to visit three different Targets to find them! I can be a little obsessive about these things! LOL

    What a great idea!! I wish that I had thought of that! My kids would have thought it was so much fun — you think it’s too late to do it now?

      It’s never too late to leave your little one love notes. Maybe you could leave one in the morning before they wake up and put one in at night before they go to bed?

    What a wonderful idea! I may need to try that with my 7-year old. I think she’d really appreciate something like that. :)
    I hope you’ll stop by and take a look at my Wordless Wednesday post. I’ve got Mr. Linky up as well! Have a great day.

    Hmm, Cool idea. Maybe I’ll do something like that in my husband’s lunches. Maybe he’ll remember Valentines this year! LOL As far as the kids I could e-mail them something everyday until then. Yes, that would be a good thing! Thanks for the ideas! I’ll follow you if I can find your follower button.

    I LOVE this idea! I might just have to steal it as well! My kids love getting things in the mailbox but rarely do. This would be the perfect solution, and they could send them to each other as well.
    Beautiful picture of your little valentine!

    No luck finding them at our Target. Which one did you end up finding them at? I bought one @ WM yesterday in the Valentine section — but it was $7 and it is more of a sturdy cardboard than plastic. I think plastic would hold up so much better– and I’d much rather spend only $1!! I hope I can find one @ a Target so I can take back the other one to WM. LMK!
