happy valentine’s day
to be perfectly honest, i had no idea that today was valentine’s day until i heard my daughter ask her little brother if he had any plans for valentine’s with his girlfriend (he does). so, at the last minute i switched from the composition i was making…and reached for these dried hydrangea florets i had been saving for just the right moment. i guess this is that moment. a time to remember what it felt like to be 17 and in love for the first time. i an almost see these flowers vibrating with fear and excitement and wonder.
