Love Notes

Born on February 13th, I call daughter Emma my little Valentine. These cards from Shutterfly were perfect for sharing the love this year with family members.

This Valentine was a sweet surprise from my best girlfriend, Vonda. Isn't this precious?

Joe was out of town this year Valentine's weekend, but I got an unexpected surprise. When the children and I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from church, the lady behind us in line struck up a conversation with the children. She asked them if they had given their mother a present for Valentine's Day. When they said no, she retrieved a bouquet of roses from her car and gave them to Christian. The children were delighted to surprise me with flowers, and I was touched that a stranger reached out with such a thoughtful gesture. It makes me want to do the same!

Tomorrow, sweet treats for some of my Valentines!
