I know, it was stupid to stay up so late, but it was a sweet little moment. Tom gave me my card first.
Then I handed him his card. We're both huge Frank fans (that's Frank Sinatra, of course), so I decided to write the lyrics to one of his classics, Fly Me To the Moon, using little drawings in place of some words. I wasn't sure if Tom would be able to decipher what all of them were, so each picture is actually a flap you can lift to reveal the correct lyric underneath. He didn't need to use it, though, since he knows the song so well.
|Fly me to the moon|
|let me play among the stars|
|let me see what spring is like|
|on Jupiter and Mars|
|in other words, hold my hand|
|in other words, baby, kiss me|
|(here's where I took a shortcut and just wrote out||most of the words)|
|I. love. you.|
We decided this will become our new Valentine's tradition. A nice, thoughtful, and simple way to celebrate!
