Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! What a great day to pull out your red, white, pink, and, of course, the New Color of the Year ….honeysuckle (pink).

My day began with reaching deep into the prize jar and selecting a lucky winner for my Vintage Inspired Contest and I had to laugh….it was Lise Marie @http://southerncomfortga.blogspot.com/.  There must be something in the water over there, because her blog partner, Joy, just won a cool bracelet from Brett @ http://silverpooloflightgirl.blogspot.com/.

Congratulations, Lise. I hope you enjoy your new accessories and, for everyone else, I will do this again soon!! Because I love to shop and want to do more than a gift card, I purchase my own prizes!! Look for something related to warmer weather!!

Yesterday, I shared wedding preparations with you and on this day dedicated to romance, here is a bit about the engagement. My daughter’s finance, who I will call R, is a hopeless romantic…lucky for her!! They met working in state government offices….she a legislative aide….he a clerk to a State Supreme Court Justice. They have many friends in government/political work. So, it was fitting that R planned to pop the question when they went to a conference in Washington D.C. He worked his resources to get out on the top rim of the U.S. Capital…the friend who led them to the top had a camera and two flutes of champagne under his coat…so, with the country’s power city in the background, R asked a powerful question and J said YES!

AHHHHHH, Here’s to love!

She said YES!
