I realize Valentine’s Day was last weekend, but I was busy pouting because my family couldn’t visit as we had planned. Winter weather–my enemy–prevented the visit. Sure, I appreciate delayed starts to the workday, but really this cold weather has.to.go.now!
I made V-day cards, as usual, and did not send them out on time, as usual. Who are we kidding? I still haven’t sent most of them out. But I know who I am so I designed the card to be given anytime.
See? No pink or flaming red hearts.
In case you can’t tell, the “hearts” are actually a leaf I was fortunate to find waiting in a puddle for me when I returned home from an errand. I almost stepped on the poor thing. It was raining, and I didn’t want to take my camera out, so I used my iPhone to snap a few shots. I altered the hearts with various apps. I can’t tell you which because I really don’t remember and I’m sure one or two of them went through more than one “process.” The individual hearts are “just okay” alone, but together they make more of an impact–in my opinion.
I like that I typically don’t get V-day cards delivered “on time.” Perhaps, when they land in mailboxes “late,” they serve as a reminder that we should express love and appreciation every day, not just Valentine’s Day.
Hugs and hearts to you!

You know I’m a fan of these “hearts.” And I want to thank you for making me a recipient of the love. Best boss lady ever!
Awww…thanks Melissa. You know I’m taking you with me wherever I go!
I love the four seasons. I do not love these bitter cold temperatures but I do love snow. It’s beautiful this morning with the sun brightening things up thru thin clouds and a fine mist of snow falling. This winter, I’ve lost that kindness feeling. Thank you for the beautiful reminder…
Like you, Laurie, I like snow, but am not a fan of bitter cold temps. I think the cold affects our mood, our “kindness feeling.” We have to put forth a bit more effort during winter. Thank you for dropping by and for the affirmation!
Thanks, Cy! They “heart” you too!
