King of Hearts

Today is Valentine’s Day! A day of love, or a day that rubs the fact that you’re single in your face. Some people love this holiday, other people think it’s a Hallmark holiday. I’m in the middle. I think we should take the time every day to show that special someone you care.  The majority of households have both parents working now, and schedules are jammed packed for the kids, so it’s easy to lose sight of the other person in the relationship, and while I think it should be an everyday thing, I think it’s a nice reminder to slow down and tell that special someone how you feel. 

On to another story… Every Valentines schools usually have a dance. Some call it Sadie Hawkins; others (like ours) call it King of Hearts.  Instead of choosing a queen or princess, a king is chosen.  Way back in the day when Sal was a senior in High School and I was a sophomore I had a crush on him.  However we didnt get to know eachother until 2006 I digress though, Sal was voted King for the King of Hearts dance back then and it still makes me smile now. He has the picture from the dance with all the guys in it, and I love looking at it. They were all so young, but didn’t know it. I should have scanned it in, but I’m still under the weather, cough, cough. Okay, I’ve never tried to scan anything on my printer yet, so I’ll have to work on that.

Roman got a couple presents (like he needs anymore), but I always loved getting something from my parents when I was younger. As you can see he brought some of his toys to the party to help make something for Daddy when he was at school. I started playing with the setting and this was taken in Monochrome. I kind of like it.

Valentines is for friends too. A dear friend of mine, Kari, made me home-made chicken soup today when she found out I was sick. It makes me smile from ear to ear to know I have people surrounding me that care so much about me! Thank you Kari! I hope everyone enjoyed your Valentines as much as I did, and if you’re in that lonely heart club, no worries! Go with the line that it’s a holiday made by Hallmark :)!

    Great post! These photos are amazing. You’re a trooper to even put a Valentine’s Day post together when you’re recovering from pnuemonia. Hope you’re back to you’re normal self soon! 🙂

    While I really like the colours in the first, I would have to say the second is my favourite! I love the focus on the side of Roman’s face and you can still distinguish what he’s playing with. Make you wanna just get in there and play with him! And by the way, what a wonderful friend you have. 😀 Feel better…
