It is that time of year: chocolate wrapped in heart boxes, pricey dinner reservations and Boys II Men love songs (obviously) pushing us to celebrate cupid’s favorite day. My first thought however is usually the line from The Princess Bride “wuv, twue wuv, will fowow you foweva… So tweasure your wuv”. I love that movie for so many reasons, but during this ever so cheesy and happy holiday it just makes me smile even bigger. If you can put aside the Clergyman’s fantastic speech impediment and focus on the later part of the sentence, “so treasure your love” , there is a beautiful truth to it.
My sweet husband woos me pretty much every possible holiday & birthday with homemade cards. They are so incredible and I love that he makes them from whatever paper he can find, often colored with highlighters and sharpies. I like to picture him drawing us as stick figures and glueing 5 different colors of construction paper together at work. As a romantic I won’t ever turn down a beautiful bouquet or yummy macaroons, but these carefully created pieces are indeed my favorite treasures.
