Valentine's Weekend Inspiration


  • A quote from the book I am currently reading, Emma.

"There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart." -Jane Austen

  • A cake Jeff and I made one weekend, that looks very festive for Valentine's day. Jeff did the baking, I did the decorating.
  • Picture 1791
  • A past photo of my dogs cuddling, on a quilt made by Jeff's Grandma. You can see where Sammy chewed the corner of the couch.

  • Peonies from my old back yard.
  • A poem below that I love.

A Child's Song

I have a garden of my own, Shining with flowers of every hue; I loved it dearly while alone, But I shall love it more with you: And there the golden bees shall come, In summer-time at break of morn, And wake us with their busy hum Around the Siha's fragrant thorn.

I have a fawn from Aden's land, On leafy buds and berries nurst; And you shall feed him from your hand, Though he may start with fear at first. And I will lead you where he lies For shelter in the noontide heat; And you may touch his sleeping eyes, And feel his little silvery feet.

-Sir Thomas Moore
