I think maybe getting pictures of your Valentines’s Day decorations up on the last day of February, is almost like taking down your Christmas tree in order to put Valentine’s Day decoration’s up. Or something like that.
I am knee-deep in finishing the final chapters for Book 2 (will hopefully have a title in the next month or two!) but while working on the book, I have been looking back through blog post hunting for dates and memories, and during these searches I was struck by two things:
First I realized that I have not been using my good camera enough lately, relying instead on my phone to capture all our moments. That is something I am going to change this spring.
And secondly, and more importantly, I realized how great it is that I have a decade of memories available at my finger tips. Memories that I promise would not have survived if not for this blog.
And so I am posting these few pics of what little V-day decorations I put out this year, their images recording for our little family, that yes, we did decorate a bit in 2016, yes we did get out the tried-and-true mailboxes, leaving love notes for each other through the first two weeks of the month, and yes, that was when I hung the crochet heart on the window screen.
You see, if I don’t put these pictures up, someday I will wonder – did we decorate that year? Were we still using the mailboxes then? And this way I can say yes, yes we did. Wasn’t it lovely?
