    When I was younger I had a young man make me some crepe paper roses in order to ask me to a dance. It was one of the most romantic things anyone has ever done for me. Clearly he was mature beyond his 15 years! Thanks for reminding me of that moment!

    This is a great roundup! I’m traveling and won’t be back until the night of the 14th, but I pinned a bunch of these to try next year 🙂
