Oh, it's Valentine's Day. Here's my obligatory single girl song to tell you how I feel about that:

Plus, who can be melancholy when you receive this bounty from your students?
Appropriately for Valentine's Day, however, my sisters and I discussed John 2 this week in our cross-country-video-chat Bible Study. John 2=Wedding Feast at Cana. We talked about it all while drinking some un-miraculous wine.

She is a very good sport and has three posts with some highlights from various weddings she has been a bridesmaid in. Here is one beauty, and you can click on the pic to go read about the rest.
Typically, my Valentine's Day is a good excuse to have a girls night, which I guess I am doing this year as well. I am watching this cutie so her mama and daddy can go on a much deserved date night.
Yay Valentine's Day!
