Valentine’s Day with Greater Lansing Area Moms❤️ | Greater Lansing Area Moms

It is February and next up is Valentine’s Day.  ❤️

Valentine’s Day usually means candy, chocolate and a lot of SUGAR!  But it also is a chance to show those in our lives – and our community – a little bit more love and kindness!

GLAMoms has put together a few Valentine’s Day inspired ideas – from art projects, to recipes, to where to get heart shaped pizzas, maybe a date night, how to celebrate at home or a few ideas to go out with the girls – you are sure to find something to try.  

If you have more ideas or see something we MUST SHARE, please DM @greaterlansingareamoms on social media or send us an email at i[email protected]
