Snapshots + Valentines Day

After Valentines lunch- Poe was ready for nap time // Cheerful flowers in my swan teapot // "Look, Mama, I don't hab a hand" // Pretty things at Aviary // I brought Spring to my living room because I just couldn't wait any longer.  ;)

On Valentines Day, Hope woke up before everyone and cooked us all breakfast.  There were fresh corn muffins, strawberries and raspberries, and handmade valentines.  To say it was sweet would be an understatement.  She is a gem.
In the afternoon we took the girls with us on our Valentines lunch date.  Last year Johnny and I went out for the first time in YEARS on V-day, and it was so crazy we opted for a lunch date this year.  Johnny and Hope ended the night with a heart shaped pizza (much, much later).  It was a really sweet day as always.  No complaints over here.  :)

I've gotten sick all over again and I actually gave myself a "sick day" yesterday.  As someone who works from home and can SEE the piles of work waiting on me, this felt like a big deal.  Of course, I still went supplies shopping, so I really took MOST of a sick day.  ;)

I hope your week is getting off to a good start!  I'm going to go drink some tea and tackle this day!

  1. Last year I only took a total of maybe 5 "sick days" for myself (with working 4 jobs, this was a very big and very scheduled deal). This year, I am making it a point to take at least a few "sick days" a month. Life is too short for us to always be working so hard!

    Really enjoyed this post. :-)
