  1. Did you bake those yummy cookies? Happy Valentine's Day dear lady!

  2. Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. What a great list my friend.

    Praying that your Valentine's Day is extra special and you are showered with MUCH those you love.

  4. I found your blog through Ann's One Thousand Gifts. Your site is really lovely. I also like to blend photography with writing. I really like #87 and #90. The love of the eternal Father and an earthly father has shaped me more than anything (until recently when I got married). God bless.
