Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s a little overcast and dreary looking out today, but I thought I’d share a few special things that are brightening me up. Above you can see this pretty heart-shaped Whitman’s box. This was a gift from a sweet friend of mine. She bought these, not only so that we could indulge in the chocolate inside, but most importantly because they’ll be put to good use.
And on Saturday, I decided I needed a little break from all the “have to’s”, so I stitched up a little Valentine for myself.
Pretty roses in my favorite vase. And a Cadbury Cream Egg – my favorite! That sweet man made me cry with the card, particularly what he wrote inside.
Unfortunately, my Valentine’s Day gift for him ran into a snag at the framer’s. The frame was defective and the finish was chipping off of it when it came in. So, we’re on to plan B. It will just be late.
And yesterday in the mail, I found a card from another sweet friend. She must have known I needed a good laugh.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate the friends I have and all the support they’ve offered me. And I don’t know what I would do without that husband of mine. He has been right there by my side and going above and beyond for my family. He is a treasure. I am so very blessed. So, I’m off to try to bring a little Valentine’s Day happiness to my parents. And rumor has it that my Valentine has a special homemade dinner in store for me tonight.
I am grateful for waterproof mascara.
