The kids and I have always loved to do crafts together so every year we make Valentines for someone in the family. They totally get in the spirit creating and sending out their own Valentines to friends and family. I love adding a personal touch (found this really easy DIY valentine’s card on Pinterest!) and of course you can’t forget about the chocolates. Chocolate is Wes and Beckam’s absolute favorite treat. They always get really excited on Valentine’s Day because they know there’s bound to be extra chocolate in the house during that time.

Godiva Chocolates

I always let the kids pick out what they want to get for the family and this year we chose to show our love through a PDG (Public Display of GODIVA) with GODIVA’s new Coupes d’amour collection and the Red Keepsake Heart Box (how pretty is the packaging!).  There were so many different flavors in each box that of course we had to taste test ;) The kids kept diving into the chocolate while we were making the cards and cracking up because whenever B gets his hands on some chocolate somehow half of it ends up on his face – the kids think it’s hilarious.

With both of us working multiple jobs and some overlap between, one thing Cody and I have learned is how to make the most of our time together. As far as work and planning, we always have weekly meetings to go over our goals, schedule, and plans for the upcoming week either at home or at a new spot we’ve found somewhere in the city. It seems like during that time it’s still hard to disconnect from our other jobs. We might both get 20 texts and a handful of phone calls over the course of our meeting, so 30 minutes might turn into 2 hours. We’ve made it a rule to set our phones aside so we are effective during that time. But sometimes there’s urgent things, and I am a freak about being away from B so I am always texting the babysitter checking to make sure he’s ok (ya I’m that crazy annoying mom! :)

Cody and I both recently got the Movado Bold Motion, Engineered by HP smartwatch which allows us to unplug for a little bit without going completely off-grid. With the smartwatch we can set our own priorities and alerts so we know when we are getting texts or calls from family, the babysitter or other work calls we are waiting on. It lights up so cool I always get kind of excited lol. It makes it so much easier to stay productive and make the most of our planning time together. I’ve always loved the look of a boyfriend watch and this one is sleek and easy to transform from a busy day to a date night. While disconnecting is very important to us, this smartwatch is definitely one of those fashion pieces that does double duty by helping you keep track of important updates so you can make the most of your 24 hours.

You can see more of this look on Cody’s Blog here.
