Spring Please Hurry

Happy Valentine's Day to all of my friends . It has turned into a snowy day here and we don't know how much we are going to get. At times, it was snowing really hard depending on where you were at. They have had several multi-car wrecks in Kansas City due to white outs. The pictures of the worse one made the weather channel.
My cute Valentine came from Two Crazy Crafters, who have shared so many wonderful Vintage Valentines. There are others, who have done the same that has brought back so many wonderful memories.
I got to see some of the Valentine boxes that were made for my middle grandson's party. I think one of the cutest was made like lady bug. They have such an imagination.
The wreath was a present made for my daughter-in-law by my hubby. She wanted one for her front door so that it would seem more Spring like, We thought perhaps it would hurry it up a bit, Of course, that is wishful thinking on our part.
I hope that you have had a wonderful day. We went to breakfast at my husband's favorite restaurant the Airport Cafe. We have known the people who worked there several years. We were served besides our ordered breakfast a heart shape Valentine pancake for two to share. It was so sweet of them. After breakfast, we took the wreath out to our daughter-in-law's. We gave the boys money for Valentine with stipulations that they could not buy Candy or pop so they went and bought books. I let them pick their own so that I don't have to worry about what books they have or don't have. They called me to tell me what ones they got.

Our snow may not amount to too much, I think it is just going to depend on where you are located. The wind is strong and it is so cold.
I was glad just to stay home and have a lazy afternoon. We decided that we were staying home for the rest of the day.
I hope you all had a wonderful day. I am going to go see what they are broadcasting from the Olympics. I have the sports that I like and the ones that I don't. I want to see the ice skating for one and I like the free style ski jumping just to name a couple. You all take care and stay warm.

We had a very cold, very windy Valentine's day too! YUCK!! Like you, I can't wait for spring. I've already started buying my spring clothes! But I'm afraid it might not be a warm one. So I'm pinning my hopes on summer! Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Shirley,
Oh what a darling card. Your Valentine's Day sounds like it was special. The wreath is gorgeous and sure does inspire Spring.
Sorry to hear you had such bad weather too. Our snow is melted now and what an event it was with 12.5 total inches for our area. Unreal for us.

Thank you again for the ECS Valentine message. So sweet to see you.

Have a great week and sending big hugs to you.
Blessings, Celestina Marie

Hi Shirley!
You're not gonna believe how much snow we've had. It has been snowing for over 12 hours. We now have over 22" of snow, which breaks the the 1914 record for snow in Feb. Here at the house we have almost 24!!! almost 10 of it has fallen today alone. Your wreath is so pretty too. I have some pics on my blog of the roads around us. Tomorrow I hope to have some more pics around the house.
Talk to ya toworrow.
