Happy Valentine's Day

We gave our children (and ourselves!) gratitude journals this year. For reference, read President Eyring's awesome talk.

I thought our kids would be very disappointed in this gift--it's not traditional candy fare for Valentine's Day. After we opened little valentines from one another, everyone opened and read the talk first. And then they opened their journal gifts, which we had embossed with "_________ is Thankful." And they all gasped and acted like this was the coolest thing ever.

Which is one of the many reasons why I love our family.
