happy (belated) valentine's day
i simply can't skip valentines' day even though i'm three days late in posting it, as i'm sure i'll enjoy reading and remembering it next year. here is my february mantel. you're right! it's a stripped down version of christmas. turns out the base pieces are just so easy to adapt for the next holiday. i also kept my flower bedecked stag. he may stay up through spring.
this pattern was simple and quick, quick. the pompoms i bought and strung as well. these sure came in handy for the school's photobooth. and i was proud that they got a trip out in public.
valentines' day itself was a happy one too.
my day started with a gifted breakfast at mcdonald's
i then helped orchestrate gifts between young love at my morning high school
my students remembered me with chocolate and flowers
i helped run the valentines' day photo booth at the afternoon high school
my son reported that his valentines were a hit again this year
my dad called to chat
g and i caught dinner and a movie at providence cinemas
the lego movie was much more entertaining than i expected
i bought myself flowers and girl scout cookies on the way home
life is good. i hope you were able to find some sparks of loveliness in your day as well. :)
