Valentine's Day 2012

You should know how this blog goes by now. I post and post and post and then I fall off the earth for a couple of weeks (or a month) and then I go back to the post and post and post routine.

But this time it's a little different.

I managed to drown my brand new gorgeous laptop. In beer.


Not my proudest moment.

The good news is that I uploaded all my photos from all of my crazy photography outings that I've been on lately. Engagement photos, new house photos, another set of engagement photos (teeny tiny mini session, but it still counts!) and pet photos. So nothing was lost, thankfully. BUT, it has hindered me in my ability to share things with you.

Things like my Valentine's Day gift to my husband. What do you give a man who has everything he wants? You make him stuff.

Like beer truffles (...ironically flavored exactly like the beer my laptop chugged shortly before its death.. so much for being budget conscious on V-Day!).

But how do you give him beer truffles?

You make a heart-shaped box out of an old rafter from your new house.

I love it. I'm not proud of it because it's perfect (I couldn't stay on the line to save my life), I'm proud of it because I made it. And it was functional. And someday I'll look back on this little rugged box and laugh, Oh, you were such a beginner.
