I know I’m a little late in posting my pictures of “Love” since Valentine’s was on Monday, but that’s just how life is sometimes. The pictures have been in my camera for a while, it’s the getting them off the computer and formatted that sometimes gets a little bogged down. But I’ve also done about a mountain of laundry and pulled off a pretty fun Blue and Gold Cub Scout banquet this week too. I promise I’m not just twiddling my thumbs.
I have to admit the first picture is not something I made. My husband surprised me with these tasty little beauties for Valentine’s Day. They were so cute I had to take a picture before they disappeared, which happened seconds after the picture was taken. Zero percent will power right here!
But I couldn’t end there. Wednesday night our power went out and we had the rare opportunity to enjoy a more primitive evening together. We talked, laughed, and read together. It was heaven. My girls really enjoyed the one candle I lit. We don’t appreciate light until it is gone. I love the modern conveniences we enjoy today, but there is something cozy and cheerful about a flickering candle flame. My heart also fills with love seeing my three girls sharing this quiet moment together.
It was a special night and I look forward to the next power outage.
