Let me start off by saying I love my husband and we have a great marriage. But we don’t get overly romantic on Valentine’s Day. It seems that way with many of my married friends.
Plus, my anniversary, the holidays, my husband’s birthday and Valentine’s Day all occur within weeks of one another. My husband calls Valentine’s Day a Hallmark holiday, but we still exchange cards. Sometimes, I get flowers.
For my kids, on the other hand, it’s a week-long holiday, with parties, cards, treats, and gifts.
And, after 10 years of marriage, when we exchange gifts, these are the gifts I choose to give.

Gratitude and appreciation are important components of any happy marriage.
These stickers recognize achievements like:
I shaved my legs today.
All my laundry is folded.
I got my oil changed today.
I didn’t curse in front of the kids today.
Of course, I’d never decline a spa day, a chance to sleep in, or breakfast in bed. How do you celebrate?
Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
