Leonardo da Vinci Would Be Jealous.

Our friend Steve is a true romantic. He loves his wife Annie with a love that is true, and burns more brightly every year. I don’t know exactly how long they’ve been married, but my guess would be well over 30 years.

Yesterday, he sent my dear husband, the Big Bison, an email with a photograph that was just one more demonstration of the depth of his love for Annie. He sent it to several of his closest buddies, bragging that it was his romantic masterpiece, in honor of Valentine’s Day, and hinted that in light of the measly Valentine’s Day cards that his buddies would be sending, that he was pretty much putting the rest of his friends to shame. As you may know, we’ve had a lot of snow lately. So, Steve went out in the frosty morning, and on the breast of the new fallen snow, left a token of the deepest sentiments of his heart on their lawn, so that Annie could see it when he led her to the window. And this is what he made:

Steve’s Original Work

 You may be having a bit of trouble reading it. I know I did. It says, “2011  Steve + Annie”.

Well, if you are a regular reader of this blog, you may also know that my dear husband Lindsey has been really honing his photography skills. I suggested he might want to make a few small changes to Steve’s Masterpiece of Love, clean up the photo a bit, that kind of thing, and send it back to Steve – for his approval, of course. In fact, Lindsey let me help him with the process. And here’s what we came up with. I like it so much better, now. Don’t you? So much sharper! So much clearer! Somehow, it just speaks to me.

Soooo much better now!!!  

So, here’s to the wonders of modern technology!!

Wishing you and your beloved the happiest of Valentine’s Days, with or without the aid of technology.
Heh heh.
