On Valentine's Day

You've gotta have


heart


and gratitude for the miracle of love,
in whatever form it may be given



 accepting the gift of love as a pearl beyond price.

(but chocolate is always a good substitute, so indulge!)

My apologies for "stealing" his or her heart.)

    1. Gwen,
      Truer words were never spoken--dark chocolate is always appropriate! (Don't tell anyone, especially not anyone I live with, but I always have a secret stash on hand).

  9. I am off chocolate, so made my beloved a heart shaped quiche! (he was just as pleased as he is not such a chocolate fan)

    1. Jenny,
      I can't imagine being "off" chocolate...but the proferring of a heart-shaped quiche definitely qualifies as a loving gesture.

  10. I suspect you make a habit of stealing hearts... with your lovely photos.. sense of humour and always fun reads. Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day.

      I prefer stealing kisses, actually (those foil-wrapped ones in particular).

    1. I had chocolate because I baked some brownies!! But I was presented with a lovely homemade supper of scallops, orzo, veggies and a bottle of pleasingly crisp Pinot Grigio by my not-insignificant other.
