Are you pro candy or flowers for Valentine's Day? I love both, but this year, I'm leaning towards an experience I can enjoy with my husband {and kids - just keeping it real *wink}.

Don't get me wrong, I love fresh flowers and candy, but those don't last long. Making memories with my family will last forever! Creating new memories and starting new traditions are becoming more and more popular, especially with the millennials. They prefer to spend money on experiences rather than things. Even though I am not an millennial, I am loving this trend! I discovered I have enough "things" when we moved this past summer. Moving gave me the opportunity to purge my house and I am all about having the minimum now.

Here's a list of things you could do with your valentine or family to make memories:

1) Have a pizza party. Each family member makes their own individual heart pizza.
2) Have a picnic indoors. This time of year, it is pretty chilly outside. Gather some blankets, build a fire and make or purchase dinner.
3) Attend a cooking/baking class together
4) Visit the planetarium
5) Go to the drive-in movies

The possibilities are endless if you give it a little thought. What would your Valentine experience be if you could choose? Mine would be to spend the entire day with my family baking, playing games and having a dance party!

Please share your thoughts below, in the comments.

Have a Blessed day friends!
