The Simple

...the simplicity of a brown envelope, waiting to be opened.  Waiting to reveal its sweet surprise.

Valentines Day is to me...

 ...a time when you experience the special, simple joy of pasting together colors, shapes, and patterns and writing sweet nothings to the one you love.  It is sitting beside Matthew at the table, leaning over as he pulls on my sleeve, whispering in my ear his idea for Sarah Anne's valentine... as of course, she looks suspiciously over at us, from across the table.  Valentines Day is the excitement in my heart as I open a card made especially for me, whether there be a drawing, a large pink heart, a button, or maybe some lace on the front, it has my name written all over it.  And it is special.

What is Valentines Day to you?  Do share!

[P.S.  Don't forget to check Emma's shop for new loveliness and inspiration. :)]

Focusing on true love. The deep deep love of my Jesus, my King. The dear love of each friend, old & new. The binding love of family. Hearing of the sweet surprises being planned.
Creating Valentines with a specific person in mind. Making thick, heart shaped sugar cookies, generously spread with pink icing and personalized with a pipe of icing. Valentines harp gigs.
These are just a few of the wonderful things Valentines is made up of to me
