Tuesday morning I woke up, made my husband breakfast, and lunch, then sat down with him while he was eating to read him a couple of verses. I wasn’t feeling very good so of course I then proceeded to tell my husband he should stay home with me to make me all better. In reality, I wasn’t feeling that bad and I really just wanted him to start the fire and snuggle in for a cold blistery day.
Of course, he went to school and I decided to lay down for a few more minutes of shut eye. Forgetting to set my alarm, a few minutes turned into over an hour. By the time I woke up not only was it snowing outside but it was beginning to stick – which is very uncommon in the South. I had heard it might flurry a little bit, but I didn’t think much of it since they said the real snow would pass right below us. Even still, I started to wonder if Roger would get out of school early.
When I finally heard from Roger I found out that all of Birmingham had decided to shut down at the same time – this meant there was no way he was going to be able to get home since the Dental School is in the middle of downtown Birmingham. We kept hoping and praying as the hours went by that the roads would magically clear up so he could get home… No such luck.
Tuesday night was our first night away from each other… And let me tell you it was horrible – mostly for him! Although sleeping in a dental chair will make for a good story someday when he has his own patients, it didn’t make for a good nights sleep.
So while watching the news late into the night – in hopes that the traffic would clear up and he could come home – I made this cute little Valentine’s Heart Decoration!
What you’ll need:
String or twine
Hot glue gun with glue
Tree branches and Twigs
First, cut out the hearts and cut the string in 5-8 inch pieces depending on how long you want them to hang – I liked to hang them at a variety of heights.
Take a piece of string, make a look with it, and glue the ends to the back of the heart.
Continue this process until all the hearts are attached to string.
Place the tree branches in a vase and hang the hearts on the branches in various locations.
Place the vase on your mantel or on a table and enjoy your new Valentine’s Heart Decoration.
