Tis definitely the season for Valentine Fun. I just came home from Walmart.
I just came home from Walmart. The decorations I spyed there are huge and the goodies in some of the carts were too. For my Sandwich Generation family, it’s going to be a bit smaller than the norm due to so much going on, but we’re still enjoying bits and pieces of fun, including prepping those cute Valentines and hiding away little goodies for the big day. And here at SandwichINK we’re going to enjoy some Valentine blog party fun in the blogosphere. It’s a terrific way to enjoy some Happy Holiday cheer and give some sweet caring for the caregivers, even if caregiving needs are keeping us right at home! So let your fingers “do the walking” with the help of a friendly mouse or trackpad, and enjoy some sweet cheer and enjoyable site-seeing at a variety of great places, some familiar ones from last year and some new ones especially focused on eldercare givers! Enjoy!
Valentine Blog Parties for Caregivers
Life Between the Buns where fellow Sandwich Generation-er, Jacquelyn, shared the cutest Valentine project with us, along with plenty of empathy for the busy-ness that comes with the caregiving territory!
Michelle Seitzer, from Seniors For Living, came up with some great ideas for New Ways to Show Love on Valentine’s Day. And what a sweet treat for this Sandwich Generation granny nanny when I read #3! I’m still smiling big, Michelle, thank you! 🙂
A great resource for those caring for the elderly parents with Alzheimers Disease or other dementia symptoms, Alzheimers Reading Room, has a Valentine for us, as well!
Denise Brown has a fun winter idea at Caregiving.com – We Break For Winter. It’s not a Valentine party, but it’s still plenty of fun and hitting at the perfect time to put a sweet smile on our faces. Visit and share something in the comments section for a chance to win a Movie Madness gift pack, plus be entered into a chance to win one of their grand prizes. Today’s the last day so hurry to visit. As a past prize winner, I can tell you, they are always sure to make your caregiving day much brighter when you are opening those special goodies! 🙂 And guess what, I won one of her many prizes again this year! Hooray. And THANK YOU Denise!
Valentine Home Decor Blog Parties
Oh my, wait til you see the lovely Valentine tablescape at The Little Round Table. It’s gorgeous – and guaranteed not to add a single pound to our waists!
If you can never get enough of Christmas, Debbie-Dabble has FIVE of her SEVENTEEN Christmas trees still up and beautifully decorated for Valentine’s Day. They are gorgeous!
My senior mom AND my granddog voted for the inclusion of Susan and Bentley’s cute Valentine post, Women Bring Love Into A Home. From the cute valentine pix, to the sweet tribute to Susan’s mom, to the always adorable Bentley, it’s a surefire pleasure!
EVERYONE seems to be extra busy this Valentine season, including Fabulessly Frugal. But she, too, made some time to decorate beautifully AND share some fun, creative and practical ways to save money in the process. A Valentine for us all.
If you’re still looking for fun and easy crafts and Valentine ideas for the kids (not to mention all us seniors), be sure to pop over to 5 Minutes for Mom. They’ve got such fun craft ideas, delightful stories, and adorable movies to share with your grandkids!

Isn’t this a delightful way to ease some of that caregiver stress, and “caring for the caregivers?” Happy Valentine’s Day weekend to caregivers everywhere! 😉
