I Love You More Today than Yesterday

The Kaya Challenge for February is Stitch Me A Song; create a layout incorporating stitches and lyrics of a song in it.

This wasn't an easy challenge for me. Mier and I are such music enthusiasts that it was difficult to choose the ONE song that would convey how I feel at this moment. In fact, most of my wedding layouts were our songs: As by George Michael, Putting All My Eggs in One Basket by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, So Lucky by Johnny Hartman and One Heart, One Heart from the West Side Story musical. (Pls have patience with my earlier layouts. Was still a beginner then. LOL!)

Anyway, I had these pictures that were taken during our 9th wedding anniversary last month. And after much thinking, I believe that this song that I chose is very apt for my layout. After 9 years of marriage, I can really say that my love for Mier has grown deeper and stronger since when we started out. And I do look forward to loving him more in the years to come. :-)
