HaPpY LoVe DaY

Valentine's Day isn't just about romantic love- 
it's a time to share hugs, kisses, kind words, and glittery cards with those we care about. 
So here are a few random happy things I'm sharing with you, my reader, on this LoVe DaY.

Baby Girl never met a puppy she didn't like. 

So we sent out 8 vintage-inspired sparkling puppy love valentines 
to special little friends who live too far away.

  We went a bit overboard with stickers on each envelope.  
Check out the stud muffin sticker- doesn't it make your heart smile?

When I was little, I wished my mom would cut my sandwiches into hearts.  And guess what?  
Now I can be that mom.  Here I'm spreading love with a PB and banana sandwich.

And saving the best for last...
Wendell Berry wrote "The Wild Rose" for his wife.  
It made me think of my hubby, so it's the Valentine message I'm writing inside his card.
And it's just so beautiful, I wanted to share it with you too.

Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart,

Suddenly you flare in my sight,
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only shade,

and once again I am blessed, choosing 
again what I chose before.
