You sound like a romantic at heart.

By the way, I was blog surfing and came across yours. Hope you don't mind my stopping by. i like your site.

By the way, speaking of being creative, have you made one of the ever popular no sew knot blankets? I made one for a sister this Christmas and had it monogrammed. It turned out beautifully.
