Head Over Feet

Some Valentine's fudge with toffee sprinkles
spread out on a Cath Kidston napkin covered garage sale Corelle plate.
I call it Cath on a budget.

It's kinda dry. Maybe I boiled it too long?


No handmade Valentines this year. Sorry folks. 
The creative bug did bite me pretty hard this week, 
but I've been spending my time sprucing up some dollar store composition books. 
Before I add a few finishing touches and give some away as gifts
I thought I'd "click.......take a pic." 
Or four.

Tell me how I've lived 32 years without knowing the joy
of double sided tape and a glue gun!?!?

Addie had fun "helping" me with the one for her friend Nadia.
Nadia has pet llamas, hence the back cover.

My fave. 
Finally, I found a way to use some fabulous vintage wrapping paper 
I found at a garage sale last year!



You may be surprised to hear that our (Steve and Julie) song is by the angry man-hating Alanis Morisette. The words seemed perfect for our "situation," [very long story] and after forgetting his big work boots at my parent's house after one of his first few visits, I printed the lyrics in the shape of his foot, tucked them in his boots, and shipped them back to MI. It's been our song ever since. So in honor of one of my favorite holidays.....I love you baby. And I'm still head over feet.

"Head Over Feet"

I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long

I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

I love the man-hater. And her song. Such a cute story!

Love the journals! And I'm with you on the glue gun - how is it that I'd never used one before the start of this month?!?

And love that song too. No sentimental meaning for me though.
