How did I ever get so lucky as to be born into a family of - mostly - brothers includinag DBR. That particular brother had the incredible good taste to convince you to marry him. Without his persistence in beating away all other suitors for your hand, I might never have met you, a lovely, loving woman.
Why am I sending you a Valentine today, E? Well, you sent me one. But not just any Valentine.
Do the rest of you remember my last art quilt? Here's the reminder:
And, here's the Valentine's Day present I received from you, E.
Girl with a Pearl Earring socks!!! If it hadn't been such a cold day, they would have been on my feet. If my quilt is accepted into the Vermont Quilt Festival, you can be sure I will be wearing my to-die-for socks. Have you all notice she is wearing a pearl earring?
What an incredibly thoughtful gift, E. You give me pleasure that will last for a long time . . .
Almost as long as the pleasure of simply knowing and loving you.
P.S. Thank DBR for me!
