Paper Sweeties and a Very Special Delivery

Twenty-one years ago today, we had a VERY special delivery...our beautiful, caring, smart, amazing baby girl, Danielle!  She was born 6 weeks early - not wanting to wait any longer to enter the world (and is still pretty impatient); weighing in at a whopping 3lbs. 4oz.! It is amazing to me how her personality has been the same since that frigid day 21 years ago - persistent, strong-willed, resilient and confident.  It's what got her through those touch-and-go weeks before we could bring her home - that and a TON of prayers - and continues to serve her well!

Happy 21st Birthday, Sweetheart!  I hope you have an amazingly wonderful day and a fabulous, blessed and healthy year!  Sent with LOTS of love!

Yep, Valentine's Day is a month away and it's time to start on those wonderful projects filled with love/friendship to those we care about.  Who will you be sending a 'special delivery' to?  (I prefer chocolate - hint, hint!)  For my card, I chose this Ahh-dorable Paper Sweeties Sent From My Heart set -- just LOVE than sweet little pup -- and added the cute postage stamp from the Happy Mail set!
