Don’t forget to hug the ones you love tonight. -Justine

Suzy writes a blog that I thoroughly enjoy. And she had a guest blogger, Carmen, whom I also love. And Carmen wrote a delightful post on men and their coffee. You should read it. (And from my experience: my husband Sean - a black coffee man, Carmen totally nailed it.)

I just finished a wonderful Valentines supper with my two favourite boys. Little M and I dressed up, and set the table with candles and paper hearts, and Little M greeted Daddy at the door with a valentine he’d coloured. Now we’re out of our fancy duds, into our sweats, and contemplating which Blizzard flavour we’ll get when we’ve finally digested our yummy pasta dinner.
And I can’t help but marvel at how blessed I am. A home to live in, good food to eat, an adorable and fun and active little boy, another Little One on the way. And of course a dear, handsome, intelligent, funny, kind, trustworthy, and incredible man to call my husband, with whom I shared a heart-shaped pizza (meatless, he always insists on reminding me… He loved me so much he let me pick a meatless pizza) on our first date 7 years ago. What a good 7 years it’s been.
Think of all the people you know.
Now, ask yourself “Do I like any of these people?”
Hopefully the answer is “Yes,” …because then you will have someone to give these sweet Valentines to! Woo hoo!
They’re from Suzy. She is awesomer than most. And she will send you the JPG’s for her artwork so that you can print them off yourself and give them to someone on your like/love list! Hooray! Now e-mail her (the address is in her post here.) and go spread some love!
