This I have learned: Do not visit the craft store immediately after kissing your boyfriend goodbye for the next 135 days. You might say I did some damage. Anything pink, red or frilly went in my basket and I headed straight home where I threw myself into approximately six hours of undivided crafting, pausing only for silly self-pitying sniffles and to stare listlessly at his left-behind sweatshirt.
But, we're getting better at saying goodbye. For example, Gabriel didn't forget to return the rental car this time, and although the past few days have been one teary blur, I do believe I maintained my composure at the airport much better than last time. Hurrah for little victories, eh? :)
Sigh. Pathetic, I know. Now I find myself in this ridiculous self-created world of hearts + frill and lonelier than I truly thought I would be. But, I can think of one thing that always brightens my days....
....is it too early for a Valentine's Day giveaway? Who cares! Leave a comment on this post to win this package of V-day crafting supplies:
