      So many cute ideas!
      I recently gave my family a heart attack :-)

      Not only did I show them how much I love them by cleaning the whole house (including my 16 year olds room) I also wrote them love notes and left them some to write back to the family!

      You can read all about it at

      Happy Valentines Day!
      Thanks for all of the great ideas!
