  1. Dear Daughter,
    I love the "I Love You" banner and the words to express what is so true about the word LOVE. Loveis just a word until someone comes along to give it meaning. So true. I will always remember all those days of Valentine's Day parties in the primary grades. THose were wonderful years. Remember Miss Knake's room where those wonderful Valentine folders were taped to each desk for the moment when the children would drop a valentine in them and you would come home with at least 30! I, of course, have everything you ever made in the first grade and they are all wonderful. You are the best Valentine's Gift of all..

  2. Aw...your mom's comment was so sweet! She really went down memory lane : )

    I just love your writing style Jessica! Hope you and Chris shared in a wonderful Valentines Day togther!
