how much? ...

The very first time I made my grandson a 'dippy egg & toast soldiers' for breakfast
he looked at the toast soldiers and said
"Oh ... French fries" :-)
I laughed so hard, gave him a kiss and said
"How much do I love you?"
to which he replied,
"Much"
{he's got that right} :-D
How much?
is now a game we play ...
so when I started to make bunny egg cozies
{getting a jump start on Easter AND thinking of ways to use up minute amounts of wool}
I knew that at least one of the cozies had to ask the question  'how much'?
this much?
Take my love,
multiply it
by infinity
and take it
to the depths of forever ...
and you will still
have only a glimpse
of how I feel
for you

I love your love of all things small, the bunnies are just so precious! And your grandson sounds so sweet. My kids and I used to go back and forth with "I love you more" over and over. To my delight I found an engraved key chain to give my 22 year old daughter. It's engraved: "I love you more" How great was that?

I love this quote. Beautiful!

XO,
Jane

The little blue & white cup is cornishware & my childhood tea cup from England (safe to say it is 'vintage' as it's over 50 years old) :-D & my grandson ...precious xo
