A foreword for all my watchers/people viewing my work: I want to let you know that even if I don't always reply with a "thank you" to each comment personally, I read every comment and appreciate every fave that comes my way. :heart: Thank you so much for taking the time to look at and/or comment and fave my work! It really does mean a lot to me, so thank you!! :tighthug:

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day! :iconpinklilyplz:
Awww look, wickle Rhyddy's brought Brookie some flowers for her hair! :icondawwface: Haha, I meant to get this uploaded in time for Valentine's Day, but I left it too late... what a surprise. :movingon: I had such an urge to draw Brooke and Rhydian again after such a long period, and I almost included Paige in this too... but I wanted to draw them during their courtship, so this is before Brooke got pregnant. :blush: :aww:

I had fun drawing such a happy, sugary scene! But damn, the background kicked my ass. :dead: I feel a bit uninspired lately, hence the predictable mountains/grass combo. Sorry to be such a bore... :yawn:

Thanks for looking, everyone! Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's no matter how you spent it. :hug: :heart:
