show me warmth.




One of the many ways in which Clint and I are completely opposite: he pretty much never complains. In fact, the only thing he ever really whines about is being cold. His hands, feet and nose are almost always freezing. I'm not kidding when I say that lately he has been sleeping in pants, a shirt and two sweaters, socks, slippers, a beanie and gloves. Then wrapped up in a blanket or two. Ridiculous, right? It's not even cold here.

So I think he liked the handmade gift I gave him in celebration of our holiday, February 13th: a rice bag warmer, to heat up his hands and feet and keep him warm when I can't. (The "h" shield is something he draws on everything and calls his personal insignia or family crest.)

He has been especially wonderful, patient, and sweet the past few weeks. There's no way I could leave out an I love you, husband on a day like today.

Happy Valentine's, and Happy 100th to my beautiful state of Arizona.

  4. What a cute gift. I need to make Bart one of these because he HATES being cold (and yes, we live somewhere warm warm warm).

  5. That gift if so perfect! Landon write "Lines" on everything he owns, in this very specific way and I love it. Husbands are funny.

  15. I think it is so funny that he is cold all the time. I guess he is so tall and long limbed his body can't keep up with trying to keep itself warm- haha. It was good seeing you today, I love visiting with you. :)

  17. bag warmers are the best! we actually have just a regular heat pad (the kind you plug in) but either way...those things are a lifesaver sometimes :)

  19. what a grand idea! i am the one to have 100 layers on while my husband says it's hot. i think i need one too. my trick for him: tuck the bottom of your pj pants into your long socks. it's super sexy too. :)
