This year she made them all on her own.
Each one was unique.
Custom tailored to the individual.
Each hand crafted.
Each with its own clever and witty St. Valentine’s Day Greeting.
As I glanced at her progress I guess I shouldn’t have been struck be her attention to detail, requests for privacy, and demands that other certain Monkeys leave her and her creative process alone. (She is the CM after all!)
She paced herself, not to be rushed, each card to given ample time for thought and design.
The best part…. she cleaned up after herself…. well, mostly…. but still, the intention and effort was there. I think that was gift enough for me.
