Saint Valentine

Happy St. Valentine's Day! (or Lupercalia)

I promise not to way poetic about how the "saint" part is always dropped by everyone. But it sure does bug me. We don't go around saying Happy Patrick's Day, do we? *tsk tsk*

Anyway, I created this card for my sister Perrin, because her favorite color is purple, and this sweet digital image reminds me of Ramona Quimby, the pesky little sister to Beatrice. She's such a hoot! Remember those books by Beverly Cleary?

I sent my boys to school today with little notes in their lunchboxes. Here's a terrible photo taken last night with my phone:

I will make a special dinner tonight and the non-dairy chocolate mousse with fresh organic raspberries is already chilling in the refrigerator for dessert.

And I bought myself a present too...*smile*
Wanna see?
A new nose ring! LOL

I pierced my nose in college when I was about 20. Except for the short time I worked at a private Hebrew school in MA, I have always worn a teeny, tiny nose stud. I actually wear it backwards (with the ball pushed through from the inside). As a Federal Officer with the USDA, I'm in the public eye a majority of the time for work, so it needs to be subtle.
However, I decided to branch out and purchased this darling silver heart from Etsy. It arrived last night and I'm thrilled with it! I will probably go back to my regular tiny silver stud when February is over, but for now I'm rocking the heart on my nose!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day!
