Now on to the Valentine’s Lunchbox Ideas!

{Mommy Lunch } It’s easy to add some Valentine’s Day flare to your work lunch. Here I added some carrot hearts to my garden salad, and removed the core from my apple slices with a small heart cookie cutter.  In this lunch you will also find some guacamole, fresh blueberries (under the apples), trail mix and my new favorite Hibiscus Kombucha!   Packed in EasyLunchboxes

{School Lunch} Here I packed a Valentine’s Day fairy bread sandwich.  Fairy bread is an easy way to jazz up a boring sandwich. Simply use small cookie cutters to remove shapes and place sprinkles in the cut out.  I also have some fresh fruit and vegges packed up with a container of dip.   Packed in EasyLunchboxes

    My favorite part of Valentine’s day is that it reminds me of my mom. One year while I was in college, on Valentine’s day mom gave me some little glass figurines. It was an out-of-the-blue thing for her to give me a gift on Valentine’s day. That was over 30 years ago and it still makes me smile to remember the joy of it.

  2. My favorite part of Valentine’s Day is just the love that resides in our house that day. The kids share their candy with all of us and they trade and just want to please. I love going shopping for my kids and Husband. I just love Valentine’s Day! <3

  3. I love Valentine’s Day because it is a low stress (in a house with 4 sons) holiday filled with low expectations; It is my favorite so I get to make it what I want. My fellas and hubby get showered with pink and red and I get to sit back and smile. They smile a bit too, it is the second day of the year where their health conscious Momma allows candy 😉

  4. My favorite part of Valentine’s day… is the chocolate. Not gonna lie. LOL

  5. I love the excitement my kids have for the entire Valentine’s experience! They love making the cards and receiving the cards and goodies later. So much fun!
