Like many of us of a certain age, I was a huge Beatles fan. I was just sure that George was going to fly over from England and take me for his bride. It didn’t matter that I lived in a remote area of the Northern California mountains, that I was 13 at the time, or thousands of other girls had the same thought.
Those thoughts faded as I grew into the teenage years, and I began to date boys more appropriate to my age and location. However, my love for the Beatles never waned. Some of my most vivid memories of that time are driving home from a high school dance, listening to “Hey Jude” and rocking out to Abbey Road in my college art classes. I stayed a true fan right up until that fateful day I learned they were a group no more.
Skip forward many many years – I’m VERY happily married to the man of my dreams, and it just so happens that the anniversary of our meeting is two days after Valentine’s Day. This year, I happened upon a perfect gift. One of my friends is very creative with paper items and has made art pieces using the words to songs – Love Me Tender, and… it just so happens… the Beatles’ I love you more.
Pretty cool! My guy was so surprised!
We don’t usually exchange gifts for Valentines/anniversary, so he was totally caught off guard.
It’s a great addition to our hall bath vignette – and…it covers up the candle wax on an awkward part of that wall. I’m not ready to repaint the bathroom yet, so it’s a perfect solution for the time being, don’t you think?

Until next time…
