Legs 'n Love

I just love Valentine's Day!

Today two people who I love very much had minor surgery on their legs.

First, my adorable nephew Max, he was born 10 weeks premature and as a result has Cerebral Palsy. He had injections in the muscles in his legs to help them relax so he could build strength and learn to walk.

Second, one of my dearest friends, she has suffered for years because of painful veins in her legs. Today she is finally having surgery to repair... whatever it is that needs repairing to help alleviate the pain. She has been waiting for this surgery for years.

I am happy and nervous for both of them and will be sending lots of prayers out to them today.

I also spend the entire day doing one of my favorite things...baking! This year I decided to tackle chocolate covered strawberries. Can I just say it was so much fun! I made over 60 strawberries and then I plated them and gave them to my family and friends. It made Valentine's Day so much fun!
I wanted to be comfy and cute today because I knew it would be a busy day.

 Yes, that is a little chocolate stain next to my necklace, it was delicious to "test" all those strawberries.
