I’ll keep this short and sweet, because we all know that a picture is worth what? 1000 words? If this is true then I get off easy tonight by sharing some photos of my recent play day and a sweet little message.
I don’t feel as if I need a reason to decorate but sometimes it’s fun to get caught up in a theme, especially one as lovely as Valentine’s Day.
Here’s the funny thing about me…I’m not a huge fan of pink, red and white or any other colors that seem to fall within the traditional Valentine color palette.
No, I prefer the muted tones of dusty rose, beige and rust with a touch of galvanized metal.
I roll rustic with a touch of shabby and a dash of vintage…
Isn’t she a darling?
I remember when I used to play this game with my kids.
I would tell them I loved them “this big” and stretch my arms out wide.
Then smother them with hugs and kisses
Now I play the “love you more” game with Riley and Jake
I don’t know if there is a love any larger than a parent’s love for their children.
Even though they are big and setting their sites on college and move out day, they will never to big to tell them over and over again how much I love them.
and even my children who’ve been out of the nest for years with families of their own, I still tell them over and over again how much I love them.
So I guess this is one reason why I love to decorate for this special day each year…
because as I do, I’m reminded of how blessed Jim and I are to have loved five children in this house and
how much our love has grown and deepened in our 28 years of marriage and
then there’s our 11 grand children we love so very very much.
but the most wonderful love of all is God’s love…
and don’t you just know that every time we tell God how much we love Him he replies…
“Love You More”
