Our Valentine’s Tradition

IMG 7557

Today we hosted our 6th {or 7th?} annual Valentine’s Tea…  The tradition started in Kuwait when Miss G was just 5 and a half months old and has happened every year since, except for last year.  Last year our sweet Sam was fresh out of the NICU and as much as it pained me not to follow through with tradition, having people over just wasn’t worth it with our bubba’s health.  We were well warned by our NICU nurses to make it through cold and flu season without him getting sick, so we weren’t taking any chances.  A little family celebration over the weekend it was.  

This year our ‘tea’ involved no tea at all {us mamas need coffee!} and was thrown together just a couple of days beforehand over text message.  We had just a few friends over and I took absolutely zero pictures once our guests arrived, but it was exactly what we needed.  The kiddos played, us mamas chatted, we all ate, and the entire thing was incredibly low key which was lovely.

Here’s a peek at our little Valentine’s Day Tea tradition over the years…

Can you believe how much our Miss G has grown?!  Gosh, time truly does fly.

My goal for next year?  To take at least one photo of our Sam and maybe get to planning our little tea earlier than a few days before the get together – hah!
