    Valentine’s Day 2013 was all about the temps.

    I gave Alex a practical yet luxurious warm gift – a 100% wool duvet from Jorgensen Farms. Truly a gift for both of us, we expect the duvet to be warm yet breathable, hypo-allergenic, and easy to clean by hanging in the sun this summer. We’re excited to have a piece of Val’s beautiful Organic farm in our grown-up bedroom. You can have one too – buy through her online store or at the Worthington Farmers’ Market.

    Alex expressed his feelings with fire. He created a flaming heart on the driveway, captured on video while I was out of the house. The resultant singe on the driveway will likely last for months.

    And we all shared warm sour cherry pie for late afternoon tea. This is our third annual Valentine’s tea, a tradition I love for the simplicity and ritual.

      Since we are working, it’s usually just a nice dinner. He bought me flowers from North Market because I love flowers in the winter when everything is brown. It’s such a brightener. I got him a lunch box because he needs one – and I put chocolates inside. Since we don’t buy sweets often, this is a treat. I’m cooking a nice dinner for when he finally arrives home. That’s it. Just a little fun to break up the winter for us.

        I thought about buying flowers for Lil. She loves them and we all could use a little color in the grey days!

        Have a great dinner, Diana!
