Va-LENT-ine's Day

Valentine's Day around our house is pretty low key. With four kids, there's not much romance in the day, but we do try to have fun and focus on loving each other. My kids offered to make all 3 meals during the day so I could have the day off from cooking. My ever-so-sweet husband bought me a dozen white roses for Valentine's day. I, however, managed to forget to give him the card I had for him! (I'll let you in on a secret: I've been giving him the same exact card several years in a row - and I don't think he's caught on yet!). The sentiment printed inside it is perfect - so I just hide it away for next year when he's not looking. I'm so sneaky!

Before the roses faded, I wanted to capture them on canvas - maybe now he will re-gift me these roses year after year! :)

I've got to dig up that missing card and see if I can somehow turn it into a Happy-Valentine's-Day-First-Day-of-Lent mashup. Now there's an interesting holiday idea!
