This is an illustration from a book from my childhood. This is the kind of illustration that made me long for "normal" weather as a child. Lakes never froze over in the Southern California beach town I grew up in. February of my childhood was actually not that much different than May.
This winter has been more like a So Cal winter than a Portland one. The last couple of weeks has been sunny and windy.
But, it is February (which I also have to look up each time I spell it) and that means Valentines Day. I just found this super sweet illustration and poem in the same A Child's Book of Poems.
Are you looking for Valentine inspiration? If so, I keep a list on pinterest of my fave Valentines ideas.
