happy valentine's day!


I don't get to spend the day with my Number One Valentine, or any of my Junior Valentines, but I do get to spend it with almost every other blood relation I've got on this planet, and that's the next best thing. My parents, my sibs, my nieces, and my single solitary nephew who has yet to acknowledge that I am his favorite auntie.

He's stubborn that way, but I'm wearing him down.


We are all smack in the middle of one big, long walk down memory lane and we've been having us some fun.


I've been sleeping like a rock, camped out on an air mattress on my niece's floor. We've been having a Jane Austen movie marathon every night, as well as a puzzle assembly marathon. To top it all off, she brings me coffee in bed every morning, so there's a good chance I may never go home.


The timing of this trip couldn't be better, as I am currently on the run from the law. The clothing boutique I take pictures for needed some Valentine shots, and I feel confident that it is considered child endangerment to have a very sweet teen-age girl spend her Saturday morning laying on a cold, concrete sidewalk in temperatures that would make a polar bear cry.

If/when they catch up with me, I'm hoping the judge is a woman, as I'm planning to offer her a pair of these cute aqua shoes in exchange for a light sentence.


Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  14. I have just stumbled upon your blog, and I love it! Gosh, if you don't feel like going home to your gorgeous farm - I am more than happy to come and look after it for you. You know, sit in the garden... look at the views, that sort of thing. :)

    I have really enjoyed spending the last few hours looking over all your delicious photos and pretty farm - it's just loveliness itself!

  17. Adorable idea to use the candy hearts as a prop! Pinned this to remember later on...

  18. I think you might even win over a "guy" judge with those aqua shoes! Very cute!

    I'm sure you're having a fabulous time with your family and GIRLS! I only have 2 guys here but there are certainly times I long for another female... I was trying to take some pictures using candy hearts (not as fabulous as yours) and by the time I got everything ready half of them were gone... of course he tried to tell me he had just eaten the purple ones but I know better!

    Happy V-Day,
    Chris

  20. That sounds like great fun. I am sure you are the favorite aunt. He's just playing hard to get. I want a Jane Austen movie marathon and coffee in bed. You can keep your puzzles...they make me anxious. They are like a to-do list on the table taunting me!

  30. I love your post and pictures. Looked back on some of your older posts and especially enjoyed the blog on the junk house. What a great job you've done with an old house. We bought some property with two mobile homes on it with the idea to build but in the meantime someone gave us an old farmhouse that we moved to the property and renovated it from top to bottom after gutting it. It is my goal to someday blog that adventure. I hope I can make it as fun and as interesting as yours.
