Happy Valentine's Day!

Taking care of our hearts this year, in memory of my grandmother...
we miss you MORE THAN WORDS! Valentine's Day last year was the last time my boys saw their great-grandmother. She was very sick, had congestive heart failure and was admitted to the hospital after complications and unfortunately never got out of the hospital. So, this Valentine's Day means SO much to us because this picture above was taken the day we dressed the boys up, Feb 14th to go and visit her in rehab. She was so happy to see them dressed in their "heart-breaker" t-shirts and they smiled so big when they walked into her room. Makes me smile just thinking about it...
So, this Valentine's Day we are going to take a long walk tomorrow morning as a family and remember my beautiful grandmother and the great time we had with her on this day, last year!
Keys to a HEART-HEALTHY Valentine's Day:
heart-shaped fruits and cheese...a great snack that is festive AND healthy!
heart-shaped JELLO! a great sugar-free, fat-free food!
...any other healthy snack turned heart-shaped :) the possibilities are endless!!
Swap candy and chocolate for bubbles, stickers...
Start a tradition to exercise together as a family to take care of your hearts!
Remember, a Healthy Heart is a Happy Heart, on this day and ALWAYS!!!
Happy Valentine's Day to all of my wonderful readers!!!
