Sharing The Love
February 01, 2016

February is a busy month in our home - Valentine’s Day, my birthday, and our wedding anniversary – all celebrated in twenty-eight short days (well…twenty-nine this year!). It seems appropriate that someone with an almost-Valentine birthday should be so focused on sharing the love, not just in February, but throughout the year. Perhaps, that’s why I’ve always loved spending time entertaining and in the kitchen, whipping up memorable occasions and decadent treats for family and friends.

My husband Randy and I got a jump-start on Valentine’s Day over the weekend by hosting a dinner party for ten. The front doorway was festooned in greenery, tiny white lights, red ribbon, and shiny hearts – with a large, shimmering, sequined heart above the door. Even our giant plush snowman – a permanent fixture on the porch during the winter – is sporting a large Valentine at this time of year.
