Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. There are lots of creative things to make or do with a great quote. I made some memes.
“Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.”-Zora Neale Hurston
I saw some beautiful handmade paper books on Pinterest. I also saw a lot of beautiful and delicious-looking cakes and candies.
“It’s a curious thought, but it only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.”Agatha Christie
I love using Canva for making designs of any kind because I’m not a graphic artist. Yet I am almost always pleased with the products I can make using this program.
“Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it’s a practice.”Eric Frome
Vince’s favorite color is green, so I made a few different green memes and I still have five days with which to create something with them.
“To be truly seen by someone, and then be loved anyway – this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”Elizabeth Gilbert
Quotes could easily be turned into cards, stationery, mousepads, sweatshirts, tee shirts.
“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as soon as possible.”Nora Ephron
First Valentine’s Day
This year we celebrate the 27th anniversary of our first date on February 11th. It was a day we will both remember forever.
For some reason, I drove my relatively new motor home to our first date. I was recently widowed and my first husband and I had loved it. I thought Vince would, too.
Who does that? I guess I thought it was cool to own a motor home. I remember thinking what a great catch I was because I had this great asset and we could eventually travel all over the country and have SOOOO much fun.
Vince, on the other hand just thought, like most people would, that it was totally weird. Was I trying to seduce him? It was awkward to park a motor home in the parking lot because they were doing construction there.
We had a great time on our date. I tried tortilla soup for the first time. We split something chocolatey and ice-creamy. I was shocked that he liked chocolate because he was in super shape and acted like he had never eaten sweets. (What an act!) He was shocked that I would share my sundae.
Outside my motor home after dinner, he shook my hand and with a little out-loud self-talk decided he could give me a hug. I crawled into my motor home feeling like the date had been a total success. I was sure my motor home and I had wowed him.
