Valentine's Day Wishes and a Valentine’s Day Gift for my Dear Sweet Boyfriend

I want to wish all of my bloggy friends a wonderful Valentine's Day! I hope you all are able to spend the day surrounded by pink and red, and by those nearest and dearest to your heart.

Last year for Valentine’s Day, inspired by
this Craftster post, I made Nathan a little book of “52 Things I Love About You” on a deck of cards. It was a fun project and a great gift for our first Valentine’s Day together in 12 years (we went to a Valentine’s Day dance together our sophomore year of high school). I sent him on a scavenger hunt around the house ~ each clue was accompanied by a little gift, and the last one was the deck of cards.

I didn’t know how to top last year’s gift this year, and was feeling pretty discouraged about the whole thing when I ran across
the I Love You More Than Blank webpage. I felt an idea cooking… I could make a little book of things I love Nate more than! I quickly starting making a list, bought some supplies at the craft store (pardon the glare on the picture from the flash ~ I was too lazy to get out my nice camera and just used my old point~and~shoot)...

And here’s what I came up with!

Just a few of the pages...

I’ve never been much of a paper crafter, but I’m so happy with how it turned out! I gave it to him last night ~ I was so excited about it that I couldn't wait until today! (He had a dozen beautiful roses for me when I got home from work so it was okay that I started Valentine's Day a little early!) Now we’re off to spend the weekend in Seattle ~ let’s hope the rain stays away!
