Cake and love songs

It's a little late for a Valentine's Day post but I can't resist. We didn't buy gifts for each other this year as we normally would. We're trying to spend less all around and we decided to go out for a nice meal and make other purchases off-limits. We followed these rules (for the most part) and the result was a sweet, sweet day. 

Tim made me a card, baked me a pink velvet cake and gave me some roses and a potted orange tulip plant (dessert and flora - this man really is my soulmate!)


For my part, I made him a mixed CD of songs that we have loved over the years together, complete with original cover art and a Valentine written inside the liner notes.

Last but not least, I finally put together a project that has been in my brain for a long time - a silhouette of our little sweetie, Ella. It needs an oval frame (or at least an oval mat) but otherwise I really love how it turned out.


  1. OOOOh!!! I love your portrait of Ella!!! I want to do that with our kids' too. Good work!

  2. That's so sweet! I love this post. AND I love the album..you ARE crafty, Miss Thang.

  3. Thanks chicas!! You are the wind beneath my blogging wings ; )
