Valentine's Day

I'm not especially enamored with Valentine's Day. But when I saw these birds out at the feeder today while sipping some lovely tea my husband had just brought me, well I sort of changed my mind.

I think I'll make a big pot of homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup for dinner and I'll serve it with some rustic bread. Nothing says love like mushrooms. If you're into that sort of thing.

On another note,

Sarah at Spruce Hill is having a giveaway until 9 PM (EST) Monday. To celebrate her one-year blogging anniversary, she's giving away a gorgeous bracelet made of polished aquamarine gemstones. Check it out! I can't believe how beautiful it is.

 

Sharin' the love,

Oh I love mushrooms- usually fried up in a pan with some onions and a little bacon if I'm feeling especially bad...the mushroom soup with RUSTIC bread (love that name) sounds scrumptious!!!

Your photo is fantastic- what a wonderful valentine's card!! Hope you have a wonderfully romantic day!
