Love is in the air...

It's almost Valentine's Day! YAY! I used to really not like this particular holiday at all. I actually dreaded it each year. I was either single and sad that I didn't have a Valentine or not single and wished I were because I was stressed about what to get the new guy (if i should get him anything) or the old guy who I knew was on his way out anyway...

Now I LOVE Valentine's Day. It's not because I'm happily married (although I am... Love you, Jonny). I look forward to Valentine's Day every year now because of gratefulimages! Our Valentine's open studio is one of my favorite events of the year. I get to be surrounded by great friends, I get to eat lots of 2 bite brownies (yum), and I get to watch people pick out something special for their Valentines. The best thing is knowing how many of my mom's lovely heart images have brightened someone's Valentine's Day.

So, if you know someone who is not too excited about the upcoming holiday, I encourage you to take the challenge and use gratefulimages to spread the love.

ps. Mom... I just read your comment (a month+ late) and since I'm all practiced up for the GMAT, I did the math. If you laid all of the Create Hope cards that have been sent they'd be 513 ft. 4 in. long. That's pretty darn long!!


  1. you are tooooooooo funny! we are sooooooooo busy at gratefulimages! right Liz & Sherri!, and you two megan? (thank you Lord for the IM and systems connection and i must not forget SWBell. Valentines Day is a favorite because it reminds me of my dad, Fuzzy, and his BIG heart and February birthday, which by the way is the same day as Megan's Jonny's. So there you have it. thanks from me to to all of you create hope challenge folks for spreading LOVE!

  2. oh and that's some math trick, Fuzzy would be as proud as i am.
