Happy Valentine's Day

I confess that Valentine's Day isn't a major holiday in our household.  Dan and I aren't terribly shmoopy.  And with an anniversary just a few days before Valentine's Day, we've usually already celebrated with a nice dinner (or a trip to Maui!). Emmie, who is in half day kindergarten, immediately walked through the front door and unloaded her goodies from school.  I imagine the same thing will happen later this afternoon when Jack gets home too.

This year, I participated in a Valentine's exchange through Adrianne at Happy Hour Projects.   Adrianne matched me up with Jenny at The Southern Institute and we got to exchange handmade Valentine's.

This week, Jenny sent me this darling framed cross stitch.  Don't you love it?  And it's not overly "Valentine's-ish"  (I realize that is not a word) so I can keep it up past today!!

She also sent this handmade card that is just too cute.

And a DIVINE chocolate bar bar, that I have to confess, did not get photographed before I dug into it.

While it was so wonderful to receive a gift, it was just as much fun to send one!  I got to bless Jenny with a little something from me!

I made her one of my heart pillows Click here to read the tutorial.

As well as a Valentine's garland. Click here for the tutorial.

I wrapped it all up and sent it off!

Here's hoping someone special blessed you with a little something today!!  Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!
