We don't celebrate Valentine's Day here, my husband thinks it is too commercial. Every now and then, he surprises me with a romantic gesture, so it's not all doom and gloom.
So, it falls to me to mark this day in some way. Obviously, what I have created is not a John Cusack boombox moment. Clearly, this is so much better. I made some crochet hearts and strung them together to make a little garland. I planned to make a whole bunch of hearts in different sizes and patterns and festoon the handrail upstairs with them but I settled on five because I thought it would be a nice symbolic representation of the great loves in my life; my husband, my children, my family, my friends and Whittakers Dark Chocolate. Ha! Who am I kidding? I just got sick of making them so that's how many ended up on the string. You might say I was feeling a little half-hearted. I know, I'm hilarious.
Time taken: 1 hour
Degree of difficulty: Easy
Result: Upon seeing my handiwork, my husband shook his head and I even detected a slight cringe. That just made me want to display them in full view on our wedding photo frame even more. Happy Valentine's Day to all the romantics out there.
