Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!
 I usually like any excuse to make a simple little bunting to hang on the fireplace, so Valentine's Day is no exception.  :)

 I used felt to make the hearts and believe it or not, I didn't have any of the fiber stuffing, so...these hearts are lovingly stuffed with TP.  Yep, toilet paper!  

My Sweetheart placed a heart box of chocolates and a card beside me in bed this morning.  Knowing that he isn't a romantic kind of guy and his personality has never shown to be 'mushy' or sentimental, this really touched me.  But what touched me most is the words in the card.  "To my wife, my blessing"  it read, and put a big lump in my throat and hot tears in my eyes.  Those words were priceless to me.  For the nearly 21 years we have been married, being a blessing is something that I have hoped I was to him.  For this, I smile and feel very contented today.

Love is strange and funny and beautiful and sometimes painful and crazy, but it's always wonderful.
Happy Sweetheart's Day!
I am sharing this post with Nancy & Lisa's Valentine's Day Party.  Thanks ladies for such a fun blog party!

The heart bunting is adorable. I made a wreath this year out of red felt but forgot to link it to today's post. Oh well.
