My Sweet Valentine

At our house we sing.  A lot.  Or hum, or whistle.  I also like car singing, my kids not so much (which makes me like it a little more).  I grew up in a house that sang a lot, mine is the same and I love that.  I also am in love with all things paper.  Books , journals, stationary, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper ( I collect it like I am a scrapbooker, but I’m not.). I like to make my own cards but when I saw these two cards for Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t pass them up.


You see, It Had To Be You, is the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding. ( I’m guessing he won’t make the connection right away. But we have been married 23 years so he gets a pass!)  The pink card says “you are my sunshine”.  I have been singing that song to my little girl (ok so she’s 17 and headed to college in the fall) since she was a baby.  It’s one of my favorites.  My son….well I’m making his card because that just would have been too good to be true had I found three cards totally fitting. Aren’t you glad I finally got to the singing/paper connection?  Whew. That was long winded!!!!!


My hubby got some chocolates from Whole Foods that I wrapped up all pretty. ( remember I love paper!  Oh and tape, did I mention I love tape ?  Ever since I was a kid… What kid doesn’t love tape?  It’s a great invention!)


So off my hubby went to work for a few days and I sent this along with him .  When he comes home he will find on our bed this little beauty .  Isn’t she cute? ( got her for a steal at Nordstrom Rack)


I am beyond blessed to have a family to love and that loves me back..even if I do sing in the car.  Today I give thanks to God for loving me and my family bigger and greater than any love I have known.  I mean he gave up his very own Son, so that I may live an eternal life.  Now that, that is love.  Maybe even the best love story of all.

Happy Valentine’s day to you and yours.  Now go, give those kids a kiss and a hug…and maybe sing (loud) in the car for their pure enjoyment, and yours!


We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19
