I Eat Hearts

Knew that would get ya.

I love eating artichoke hearts. They are a good (albeit morbid) way to commemorate the day of hearts. Of course, I also like to celebrate by giving and getting Valentines!
Last night I watched the opening ceremony for the Vancouver Olympics, and WOW!! I was blown away. My favorite parts were the commemorative trapeze act for the Georgian luger who died in practice, and the wild tap dancing fiddlers in their funky kilts and spark-throwing shoes. I'm not huge on sports, but I do want to see the skiing and snowboarding. I'd like to see that fabled double-cork that Shaun White is working on. Anyway, have a Happy Valentine's Day and enjoy the snowy show!

They Have Arrived!!

Today my new shoes were delivered! They are just as lovely as I expected, and fit as though some dear cobbler had my particular feet in mind. I felt like Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly when I slipped them on! Now I am ready for Springtime, baby showers, or anything else calling for winsome whiteness. I don't think I've owned a pair of little white shoes since I was in Sunday School, but now I'd say I'm quite soundly smitten.
