Valentines for the honey - Astonishment for me

I took one of my Jimmy Rodgers heart kits - gussied it up with some silk flower petals - hooked it to an older  Adafruit Boarduino and gave it to my honey for Valentines.  I used 3 dollar store AA's as power.   She put it up on the Mantel and there it sits - for a week now - happily blinking away.  I am astonished at how long the batteries are lasting - she is loving the gift I made her.  I guess we are both happy.
