Love Story

A lovely quote appeared on Joss & Main the other day and I pinned it.  I couldn't afford to buy it so I decided to make my own.  This is a practice run.  I have my black board started, but never finished to put my menu on, but I cannot decide how to finish it.  In the meantime, I have been writing little quotes on it.  

This is my offering for the rest of this Valentine's Day Month of February:

I should have taken the picture this morning before the black clouds rolled in with lightning and thunder dropping the temperature by 25 degrees and raining and hailing and finally snowing.  Now at night by the light of the dining room chandelier it looks yellowish, but it is not.  I will try again in the morning.  It is supposed to be back in the 50's tomorrow with partial clouds.  I should be able to get better light some time in between those partial clouds.

( [2/19] A better version, but very difficult to shoot, the light from the conservatory overwhelmed the picture and I didn't want to move my board or all the cute little hearts would be gone.  It took a lot of finagaling to tame this extra light.  It is still not great.)

This rendition in chalk work is my first.  It is a little rough, but I like it.  It has all the sentiment of the month of Love.  I hope you have renewed your love this month.  Like January, where we renew our goals; February should be the month when we renew our love. I have the greatest respect and admiration for my sweetheart who has been so attentive while I recover from surgery.  He had been great.
