Happy Valentine’s Day! My husband was surprised by a truck full of paper hearts the girls decorated for him :) We put them in his truck after gymnastics last night. Later today I’ll be heading to an incredible local bakery to pick up the heart shaped chocolate cookie I ordered for him.
Do you have any special plans for today for your loved ones? I love how much my girls love this day – yesterday Capri announced that Valentine’s day was her new favorite day. I asked her why and she said, “Because it means love and I love you. And hearts are my new favorite shape.” I love that girl :)
Okay – enough about Valentine’s Day…or so you think…
Now it’s time to hear more from today’s block designer – Pam Geisel of For Quilts Sake
