Love Giveaway with Whole Foods / by Kate Brightbill


We talk a lot about Valentines and pretty little ideas for how to celebrate... SO as a married mother to two little girls, how do we REALLY celebrate Valentine's day? 

The past five years, we've done the same thing. It's simple. It's perfect. It's low-maintenance.... it's romance meets practicality.

Whole Foods

We awaken and give sweet kisses to all the valentines in the house. I have high hopes of making pancakes in heart shapes... or we have cereal. Some years, I've grabbed a specialty coffee for Brian, some I just make our regular coffee with a little love note for his work day. ;)

I get the house as clean as we can and set the table beautifully with candles and valentines on each setting before Brian gets home from work... He comes in with gorgeous flowers {like these pink fair-trade beauties from Whole Foods above- $20 for a dozen in amazing color options! LOVE} and gets the grill fired up. He grills steak and steams crab, makes side dishes, and it's the best meal we eat all year long. I'm not kidding you. I'm so spoiled. The girls join us for a bit, and then we send them to bed and finish the meal slowly and chat about how good of a cook Brian is- oh I'm kidding- we tell each other anything and everything. It doesn't need to cost a fortune to be amazing. Getting babysitters + reservations on Valentine's day is madness, so we just avoid, lay low, and enjoy. 

Whole Foods provided everything we need for this year's Valentine's Day. We got our menu covered, gorgeous flowers for the house, fancy soap, chocolates in heart shapes, chocolate in bar shapes, sweetheart cookies for our little girls, candles... Seriously, all the bases covered in one beautiful {and responsible!} store.
