Melania Trump marked Valentine's Day with a tweet remembering how she spent the holiday in past years - but made no mention of her husband Donald. 

The former first lady took to Twitter on Sunday to share three photos of herself visiting with sick kids at The Children's Inn at the National Institute of Health.  

'On this #ValentinesDay, I think of the brave & inspirational children at @TheChildrensInn @NIH where I visited the past few years,' she wrote. 

'Sending them love & strength, today & everyday. #HappyValentinesDay.'

Twitter users were quick to notice that Melania didn't mention her husband of 15 years in the post about a holiday celebrating love. 

Melania spent her past three Valentine's Day visiting The Children's Inn in Bethesda, Maryland, where she joined in various arts and crafts projects with the young patients battling deadly diseases.

But this year is remarkably different, as she and Donald settle into life after the presidency at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida. 

Donald was unable to post anything on the holiday this year after having been banned from most social media sites following the Capitol insurrection last month.  

Melania on Friday announced the official opening of her post-White House office, but did not disclose what projects she will be working on under the new initiative.   

She has hired three members of her White House staff to help her with the set-up of the office, according to CNN. 

One source told the publication that she 'hopes to resurrect her Be Best campaign' to help children deal with online bullying. 

Meanwhile, the former First Lady is said to be enjoying a leisurely pace of life since she relocated to Mar-a-Lago last month. 

Several sources told CNN that Trump is spending much of her time at day spas. 

'She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again) and has dinner with Donald on the patio,' one person who is familiar with the former First Lady told the network.  

Another source stated: 'It is not unusual for Trump to spend several hours a day there [at the spa], enjoying the benefits at her disposal, often going twice in a 24-hour period, for massages, nail care, facial treatments or other items on the menu.'

The sources both say 'the former first lady has mentally all but left Washington behind, unlike her husband'.   

Melania is also reportedly jealous of the attention new First Lady Jill Biden is receiving, with sources saying she is  'lamenting the media focus on her successor'. 

Jill featured alongside her husband on the cover of People this week, and has given an interview with Parents magazine. 

She has also been the subject of several glowing profiles, and has already given more than half a dozen speaking engagements.   

On Friday, Jill appeared alongside her husband President Biden to erect heart-shaped signs outside the White House in honor of Valentine's Day.   

According to a media release from her office, Valentine Day has always been one of Jill Biden's favorite holidays. 

The 69-year-old palled around with the press pack alongside her husband and their rescue dog as she posed by the signs. 

They featured words such as 'kindness', 'healing', 'courage' and 'compassion'. 

Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama also marked the Valentine's Day in social media posts on Sunday.  

Barack shared a sweet message to Michelle and their daughters Malia and Sasha on Twitter, in which he praised them for making 'everything brighter'.

'Happy Valentine's Day to the three who never fail to make me smile,' the former president wrote alongside an undated picture of the family.

'Your dazzling light makes everything brighter.' 

Michelle posted her own heartwarming message two minutes later, accompanied by a picture of her and Barack surrounded by lights.

'Happy Valentine's Day, @barackobama!' she wrote. 'Life is always brighter when I'm by your side.'
