A Note from Elizabeth
Every year since 1996 Matt and I have received a Valentine from Miami University, where we graduated (1994 and 1995, respectively). Miami doesn't do this for every student, only the graduates who marry each other : ) I've been meaning to do something with these Valentines for years, so this was a great kick in the pants to get them out of a Ziploc bag and into an album. When I look at what I did (sew pocket to page + scan a heart from one of the Valentines to use as an embellishment + add a scrap of journaling) I'm embarrassed that it took me so long. But no matter! It's done now and I can easily make another one for the next 15 years' worth of Valentines!

March Fun Fact
We officially have four readers in our house (and one not-yet-reader who can write her name by herself).
