By Candle Light

Valentine's Day may be becoming my favorite holiday.  There is less pressure than Christmas, I really like red and pink together, and a day reserved to love people makes me happy.  Plus, I have about 6 different sizes of heart shaped cookie cutters since Maggie's birthday party which makes Valentine's meal time a creative love fest.

 It was fun such a perfect day, sandwiched between some wickedly hard days so I am reflecting back on it in great fondness.  Especially this one thing, and  although I have no photographic record of it, I must tell you that  on Valentine's day when Libby finally woke up from her nap, Maggie ran to her and threw her arms around her waist then looked up at her big sister, waved her perfectly mastered royal wave and  said "hi." She was so happy to see her big sister.  I cried, of course.  Kev smiled at the girls and laughed at me.  Then we dimmed the lights and lit candles in mason jars for the most perfect Valentines dinner I have ever had.


You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.~Pride and Prejudice

Good to know that Maggie loves her big sister as much as she is loved by her.
