will you be mine?

It started when I realized I wasn't going to be eating sugar on Valentine's Day. No chocolate? No cinnamon hearts? No delectable dreamy desserts? No sweets for my sweethearts? Sigh.
This was going to be harder than I thought.

So I starting thinking.
And I thought I might as well build off my strengths, so rather than attempt any crafty cutesy whatevers, I bought post-it notes. Lots of them. And I started looking through my collection of quotes. And searched for even more.

And then last night I put them up all over the house. Some, more for my kids. Some, more for my husband.
And as Zac woke me up to say goodbye this morning, he told me I'd outdone myself but that he sure felt loved this morning.

And I loved hearing the kids skittering around the house this morning looking for more notes to read: in the bathroom, in the cupboards, in the fridge. That makes me so happy.

My favorite thing that I "put together" (harhar) this year, though, is this wooden heart puzzle I found on etsy (and my sign that I added to it).
As Isaac told me this morning, "mom, did you see there's even 6 pieces to the puzzle and that's how many people are in our family?"
oh yes, dear child. I noticed.
And that's precisely why I just couldn't resist it. :)

Wishing you all a Valentine's that puts all your pieces in place . . .
