A Little Love
Pardon me... I think there is a Tina Turner tune playing in my head... "what's love got to do with it?"... I just aged myself, didn't I? ;-p
Love has a great deal to do with it really. I love that sign people post in their homes... "because two people fell in love..." So now we know who to blame, right? Indulge my silliness please...
February will be here before we know it. I haven't been to my local box store but I suspect the big heart shaped candy boxes are on the shelves. Rows of conversation hearts... so fun to look at but does anyone really eat them? hmmmmm...
Valentine's day is usually low key at our home. We rarely dine out. Usually we fix something at home and just hang out. Most years we just talk about where we've been and where we're going. Sometimes it is important to just take stock of where each other is at and where the relationship as a whole is going. How do you know if you don't ask? So this little card will probably go to my honey. Hopefully he will think kindly of me and not ding me too hard when we discuss the good and bad of the last year... lol
This stamp set from Papertrey Ink is so versatile. I love that it can be used for all those "mushy" occasions. Clean and simple... stamping the way I like it... Enjoy and have a wonderful and blessed day!
