(favorite valentine from ward, ever)

*

*

and all the paper heart garlands are still up. probably will be for a while. I have been known to let holiday decorations ride for months on end, until I am forced by societal conventions to take them down. the fact that christmas came down before the end of january is nothing short of miraculous. though there are still white paper snowflakes taped to the windows. those will stay up until the very last day of winter. I will not budge on that one.

in other news, ava received her first valentine from a boy, her first heart-shaped box of chocolates. I know, I know. I KNOW.

  16. Hi Andrea! I wanted to send you an email, but couldn't find an adress. So I hope my message arrives on this way.

    I do a weekly feature on my blog called "Webliebe" (german for "web love") and this friday’s theme will be "photo backdrops".
    I'd love to use the sixth picture in this post as one out of six photos in my feature.
    I'd link to the original source for sure. Are you ok with that?
    I'd love to hear from you soon.

    Thank you so much and greetings from Germany, Fee
