We got another round of snow this past weekend so Kristin and Lee took Breck out for another go at sledding. Here are a few pictures. Gosh I love him!

Happy Friday! Seleta has just started a fun post every Friday called "Fabulous Friday." Check it out here. You can thank me later. Seleta has flawless taste, and I always love reading her blog. She lives in Watercolor and I first met her at the homeowners dinner when mom was getting some advice on lamps for the house. Ami actually won FF last week and is the proud owner of a Macbeth collection clipboard! Be sure to check out the Macbeth Collection website, they have so much cute stuff. I want to buy one of those buckets for every room in my house! In the spirit of spring and color, I thought I would share my new bedding as part of the fabulous friday post. I got this bedding for Christmas as a gift from my parents and LOVE it. It is so bright and cheery! On Tuesday I went to pottery barn in Cinci and bought some pillows to really finish out the look. Here is a rather poor picture (taken on my phone), but you get the idea. I think it turned out super cute! So Seleta, yes, you have a color loving diva here! :)

So, being a single gal, Valentines day can tend to be a little depressing. I woke up today and decided that I wasn't going to mope around. I was reading a book recently on using this "season of singleness" to be productive and fall more and more in love with my heavenly Father, and I fully intend on doing just that. I am enjoying today. I got up, had lunch with a friend, went for a walk at the arboretum and am just treasuring not having any commitments. Whenever I get discouraged I try to remember who the author of romance is and how HE desires for me to find true perfect love. I read Beth Moore's blog every day and this morning she had blogged about exactly what I needed to hear, so I thought I would share it with you. I have always said that if I could pick 2 people to go to lunch with it would be Beth Moore and Paula Deen. Im sure Paula's Valentines day blog would have something to do with butter, but Beth's offered a little more inspiration ;) So what about you? If you are single, how do you plan to enjoy this day of love? If you are happily in love, how do you plan to cherish your mate?

In the spirit of Valentines day Ami was posting a perfect engagement story for some of the people she knows best. After reading the stories that she drummed up for her mom and her sisters, I requested that she write one for me :) Here it is! I cried when I read it, so sweet. She said she would be sure to pass it along to mr. right whenever he comes along ;)
"I think he should take you to NYC at the begining of October when the air is cool and the sun is still warm. You would trot around the city all day grabbing yummy street food and visiting the cutest shops. He would buy you the “perfect little dress” that you had found and tell you to put in on now so he could take you to dinner. He’d also buy you a cheap little pashmina knockoff in Chinatown to keep your shoulders warm. (He’d act like this was all on a whim, even though he’d curiously been wearing a blazer all day) Then he’d take you to the gates of Central Park and flag down a horse carriage. You’d take it “once around the park” so you could enjoy the end to a perfect fall day with all the trees turning crimson and gold. Then you’d stop The Central Park Boat House for dinner, you’d sit on the dock. After the most yummy desert when the sun is setting over the lake he’d get on one knew (insert speech) he’d give you his grandmothers 1920’s Tiffany engagement ring. Afterwards he’d explain that he’d already asked your Dad permission and your parents, families, and closest friends were waiting in a private room inside for your engagement party."
