This past Valentine's Day weekend for me was spent in the most unconventional way...without my husband! Now, let me explain before you begin worrying. Months ago before we moved from Southern Oregon our close friend Dan invited Aaron to join him and his brothers on a snowboarding trip to Mt. Hood. My reaction was, "WHAT?! Valentine's Day weekend?! Are you kidding me?" Well, it turned out that the weekend of February 14th really worked out best for all their schedules, so I was fine with it as long as Dan's wife, Jacquelyn, could stay the weekend with me. And she did, along with two other girlfriends, Yumiko and Julie, who decided to join us! Besides, Aaron's taking me to a really nice hotel this weekend as a belated Valentine celebration...without the kids, thanks to his parents! I can't complain.
Okay, I couldn't stop at making just felt suckers...I had to make the real thing!
(Or should I call them lollipops?! I can't decide!) :)
