A friendly reminder for those of you who just don't feel like making Valentines this year but are feeling slightly guilty about it.
There are a million things we could do “better,” more thoroughly, or with more style. If we did it all, we'd go nuts.
As you go forth and spread the Valentine’s Day love, keep this sanity check in mind. If you and your kids take delight in making Valentines, have a ball! If you don’t…buy a box and don’t give it another moment’s thought.
Those circular symbols at the bottom of the graphic (created by my multi-talented coauthor Christine Koh) come from the cover of our book, Minimalist Parenting. The central theme of the book is doing less of the stuff that isn’t important to you so there’s more room for stuff that is.
