It’s kind of weird to be in the midst of a divorce on Valentine’s Day, a holiday I have mixed feelings about anyway. This year, I’m recognizing it as an opportunity to get all gushy over my friends and family. Plus, Grace’s artwork is piling up. So we decided to recycle AND spread the love by cutting hearts out from her school paintings, and then pasting them on art postcards that have been collecting in my stationary basket with no apparent destination. I love how the hearts — placed by Grace — changed the context of the photos. Now she wants to paste hearts every night. I can’t really argue with that.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s a sampling of what we did.
