Are you feeling the love on this, the most romantic week of the year? After making twenty-two mason jars full of homemade s’more mix, tying ribbons and sticking labels, I’m sort of torn on the answer to that question. Remember when you went to the drugstore and decided whether you wanted Hello Kitty or My Little Pony Valentine’s to give out to you class? Those days are long gone.
Stupid Pinterest. (I’m just kidding, Pinterest. I love you. And, like all loves, you push me to be better… Even when it’s crafty.)
Anyway, Will and I had a blast making that mix, and that his mother would do anything even resembling a craft is a testament to the above: Love never fails.
This is what his daddy and I (and probably like forty percent of the rest of the married world…) have engraved in our wedding bands. Well, more aptly, I have it engraved in mine. Will’s is at the jeweler after being totally smashed, while on his finger. And thank goodness the ring was all that was smashed. A dentist with a smashed finger is a bit of a problem. Maybe we’ll get it back in time for Valentine’s Day. If not, and it can’t be fixed, that sort of solves the problem of what to give him!
I hope you are having a week full of love and roses and delicious Valentine’s treats! If you need a little snack to get in the Valentine’s spirit, try mixing together Amy’s graham cracker bunnies, mini-marshmallows and Valentine’s M&Ms. Then you can hand it out and tell people you need “s’more” Valentine’s like them. The little guy and I love it! I’ll show you some pictures in a couple of days!
