I love bringing in a new month with this fun series!  

1.  Kisses or Hugs?  Hugs galore.  I cuddle into my husband and everything in the world is right.  My fave is also snuggling my kids to bed. Although Willis isn't a fan of that anymore. Sigh.
2. Candy or Flowers? Flowers.  I try to have fresh flowers somewhere in the house at all times.
was looking for flower pictures and found this oldie from 2013... I couldn't resist.
3. Baking or Cooking? I like doing both those things and am starting to feel more motivated in the kitchen again after a couple weeks of being sick and blah.
4. Do you remember your first kiss? April 10. Grade 7. My basement during my birthday party while slow dancing to Tears in Heaven.
5. Favourite color of roses. All the colours. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
6. Conversation hearts- yes or no?  Indifferent.
7. Do you leave love notes? Very randomly and usually in my kids' lunches or when I leave for a trip.  Lucia hates when I leave, she always gets something special.

8. Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?  I sure do! My winter twinkly lights are still up and I've accented with reds and pinks.  After Valentine's Day I do a good pre-spring clean and then March 1 I'll put up my Easter and Spring decor.

9. Red or Pink? Purple
10. Milk, White or Dark Chocolate? I will accept any chocolate at any time. Mmmmmm, can I pick Peanut M&Ms as my current fave?
11. Do you believe in love at first sight? Not really but somehow I knew very quickly with Dan that the game was over and I had my guy.

12. Humourous or serious Valentine cards? Do I do anything seriously?
13. Fave chick flick or romantic movie.  Crazy Stupid Love.
14. Stay in or Go out? Once upon a time we'd go out, but Valentines is a busy night for Skip, so typically we stay home.  I love cuddling with my little ones anyway.

Bring on spring!
