My Favorite Block Quilt Along Block 6 from For Quilts Sake

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240"]Valentine's Day "it's about love and I love you." -Capri[/caption]

Happy Valentine’s Day!  My husband was surprised by a truck full of paper hearts the girls decorated for him :)  We put them in his truck after gymnastics last night.  Later today I’ll be heading to an incredible local bakery to pick up the heart shaped chocolate cookie I ordered for him.

Do you have any special plans for today for your loved ones?  I love how much my girls love this day – yesterday Capri announced that Valentine’s day was her new favorite day.  I asked her why and she said, “Because it means love and I love you.  And hearts are my new favorite shape.”  I love that girl :)

Okay – enough about Valentine’s Day…or so you think…
