I [Heart] You!

  
This metal heart has a little story behind it...

As I was looking through my jewelry, I came across this metal heart (it was a pin) and my thoughts took me back 10 years.  My daughter made this in Girl Scouts for me when she was about 8 years old (if you did the math, she's now 18!)  I just teared up (such a mom thing!) because right now we are talking about college and roommates and majors.  She's becoming an adult before our eyes!  Of course, I'm excited for her to start on her own wonderful adventure, but she will always be our little girl.  I'm giving this card to my hubby...so when he tears up, I won't be the only one needing a tissue!

Thanks so much to these challenges for the inspiration - and the wonderful memory of my sweet girl making a special gift to me!
