Valentine's Day : Gift Ideas

I know that everyone celebrates holidays differently. Some holidays may mean more than others, some don't get celebrated and some take much planning. The Hubs and I have never really celebrated Valentine's Day. Even while we were dating it wasn't a holiday we ever really went all out for. To us it's always just been another day. Last year we went on a family hike to "celebrate" family time during the Valentine holiday. This year we will stick with the hike tradition and get away to explore caverns in New Mexico. It's how we're choosing to celebrate Valentine's Day in our household...outside with adventure.

Because we don't typically celebrate Valentine's Day, we don't usually exchange gifts. This year though we decided on small meaningful gift exchanging. That husband of mine, he's not much of a patient one. A few days ago he insisted on giving me my gift. I refuse to look or open it until next week so you will have to wait until then to find out what I was given. M is getting a gift too...his very own travel journal...shhh don't tell him 😉
