Earlier this spring, we took the kids and a few of their buddies (babysitting night, perfect activity!) to the park a few blocks from our home. The street was lined with dandelions. I know they're a weed, but I'm a lover. First off, they are lovely floating through the air. Secondly, they are super fun to play with. I taught the kids how to make dandelion jewelry. Just pull the stem into two long pieces and tie it around a finger, wrist or wherever you need a good piece of jewelry that will last 4 seconds.
I found these photos the other day and had to share. Dustin and I say "I love you" a lot, and often the other person will reply "how come?" Mr. Romance is usually good at coming up with a clever reply whearas I often end up with a shrug of the shoulders and a.. "I just do.." Which is really code for "there are too many reasons to list". But I thought I would take a minute to write it out. You know, because it isn't Valentines Day or his birthday or any other holiday. I'm a lucky girl.
