eternal love

Happy Valentine's Day! Brian got the day off work and we are heading out in a bit
to spend the day with Tim. While Brian helps Tim work on his taxes, I'll head
to Barnes and Noble and get a cup of coffee and browse the books and magazines.
We'll then take Tim grocery shopping (he's without a car ~ we're still helping him 
look for one) and then we'll all go out to dinner at a Thai restaurant. I'm looking
forward to spending my day with two of the people that I love most in this world.

Speaking of love and family, you might recall my post from January 13th where I
announced that I won a giveaway from The Moski Homes blog. I got to pick a
fabric-wrapped wire word from Jane at Planet Joy. I wanted a word to go over the
family photo in my office and asked you all for some suggestions. Thanks for all
who offered their help and lovely thoughts. I ended up choosing the word, "eternal".


Isn't it beautiful?


I haven't hung it on the wall. I just have it propped on top of the picture for now.
Haven't decided if I'm going to leave it this way or hang it a little higher.



Jane also sent me two hanging hearts, which I have hanging from a dresser knob.


Yes, love goes on, even in death. 
Eternal love.
Philip will always be with us.

  2. I really like what you did with it. That's a beautiful picture of all of you too. I think putting the word there was a perfect idea. I hope you have a wonderful day with your family!

    1. Thank you so much, Jennifer. That picture was taken on Phil's 21st birthday. He passed away just two months later.
