Happy Heart Day!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, FRIENDS!
Hope your day is filled with laughter and LOVE!
I had fun reading some of your responses on Facebook when I asked what you’d love to receive today…things like:
jelly rings
$50,000 
a back rub
acknowledgement
the kids to clean their rooms
Hope you all get what you’re wishing for, yes, even you Heather Matz and then you can share that 50 grand with me!
As for us here in the Artsy Family, we’ve been busy crafting and gifting and surprising each other.
Here’s what LC did for hubby.  Yesterday, I asked him “What do you love about Daddy?  Why do you love him so much?”  Little Crafter did an amazing job coming up with a whole list of reasons, which I turned into this 5×7 subway art.
{Thanks to Cheerios and Lattes for the idea!}
For his gift from me, hubby wanted a ring to match the one he gave me for Christmas; a silver band with a verse from Song of Solomon inscribed on it.  Of course, it arrived early, he knew it, and so he’s been wearing it for two weeks already.  I didn’t want Valentine’s Day to be anti-climactic though, so I do have another surprise in the works.  I saw this idea on Pinterest recently…

They suggested using one balloon for each year of marriage.  We’re working on year 11, so I went ahead and got a dozen since it was cheaper. ;)   I printed up these tags, then on each one wrote, “In 20___, I loved you for” and listed out several specific wonderful things hubby did for me that year.

I can’t wait to see his reaction!
My gift is supposed to be this heart necklace I saw on Etsy with the Hebrew word for love {ahava} stamped on it…I don’t know yet what, if anything, else my boys have in store for me.
Stamped heart with the Hebrew word  for love , stamped Pendant , stamped necklace, stamped heart  Pendant Necklace , heart necklace.
For Little Crafter, we took this “Heart Attack” idea from Pinterest {of course}; after he went to bed, we wrote reasons why we love him on hearts and we made a trail of them on the wall leading from his room to the kitchen.  Valentine’s Day is also the perfect day for a Mama-Noah breakfast date at Starbucks, don’t you think?  He’s also getting a heart balloon and a magic kit.  We’re having a family dinner {spaghetti} and a movie night, then on Thursday hubby and I get our romantic dinner out.
As we take this day to celebrate love of all kinds; romantic love, the love of family, and the love of friends, let’s not forget that “we love because God first loved us.”  If you want to see what love is really all about, just look at the story of God’s selfless sacrifice just so that we could have a relationship with Him.  I recently pinned this great quote {thanks Deb Vaughn!} and I think there’s no better way to wrap up a post about love…
