Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you are all having a fabulous Valentine's Day!

Ours has been quite relaxing actually, which is a definite change of pace for us. I just took a long bath, with bubbles no less, and listened to... silence...ahhhhhhhhhhh. My kids and my husband were/are napping, I should have been, but decided to relax in a nice hot bubble bath instead. My daughter decided to grace us with her presence at 4:40 this morning, so it has been a very LONG day, but such is the life of a parent *smile*.

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day before I missed yet another holiday here on the blog :-)! I also wanted to share the Valentine I made for my husband this year.

We don't usually celebrate with much more than him making dinner (a change from the norm believe me) and exchanging cards. I never expect anything to be quite honest with you, safer that way :-) But then these beautiful flowers showed up on our front porch.

I LOVE those orangey ones! He told me he picked the colors out specifically; I was intrigued. He actually did his homework? What they mean, according to my husband: white rose is for loyalty and honor; orange rose is for desire; and lavender rose for enchantment and love at first sight. Then he added, "Plus I thought the colors all went well together," which if you knew my husband you would find comical since he could care less if things match :-) What a sweet gesture - what's not to love!

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope it was a memorable one.

So happy you visited :-)

All around gorgeous!

We have a TON of red hearts here and two dozen roses (8 for each girl in the house!) in red, yellow, white and that greenish-white....Very festive--and such a surprise, really, as we have never celebrated the heart holiday like this before. Fun!

Get some rest...and little, too!
