However, after morning service, we rushed home and tidied up, set the table with flowers and new plates (Ikea gift card), ate a special meal (even if the beef was overcooked!) & gave each other homemade cards & store-bought gifts. Next year, I hope to encourage more handmade items like this lovely person did.
My 2nd son is taking a sign language course and made a card for my husband that says, "I love you VERY much!" I was told that you make the v sign with both hands, fingertips touching and then pull your hands apart in the opposite direction to say 'very'. Very sweet.
My daughter made envelopes, stamps...
and took photographs of animals holding clay hearts (which she made from Sculpey.)
Hope your day was special too.
