all you need is love

i think i'm the only person who actually looks forward to valentine's day. yes, it's a sappy holiday where stores make too much money off of stuffed animals, chocolates, and corny cards. but it also happens to be the day that tannon and i enjoyed our first date.

and because i think it's fun to do dorky things for tannon. my favorite was the year i made up little poems and sent him on a scavenger hunt through our 500 square-foot duplex.

and because it gives me something to look forward to during the long and dreary winter.

the other day i came home from work to a package with my name beautifully written in red marker. inside was a little note from my darling caitlin {sis-in-law}. she had made me a valentine's banner. it meant so much to me, i almost cried.

and now? my house has a darling valentine banner hanging in my front room.

Eek! I should have done some more clean-up on that baby & clipped some of the loose strings. I hope it looks cute from far away. LOVE YOU!
