My Valentine's Gift to You

Dear You and You and of course, YOU,

I wish that I could be with each of you on Valentine's Day.  I don't see this day as much as a lovers' special day, but as a chance to send affectionate wishes to those who matter to us.  If I were with you, I'd make a special dinner for you tonight.  I'd probably make a chocolate souffle' for dessert.  Since I can only do that for you in my imagination, I thought I'd share this little gift video with you and you can make your own souffle'.  As my Sister-In-law Janet says, "It's ever so easy peasy!"  Do try it and let me know how it turns out for you. 

Happy Valentines Day,

Hi, Dana
The site looks great. I think your archives should be more prominently featured, though. I would suggest that the book suggestions be somewhat truncated to allow a space for the last few titles of your journal posts with a link to archives of the remainder. I don't know how difficult that would be to lay out, but that would be my suggestion to you. As it is, the site is attractive and user friendly.
............. and a very Happy Valentines to you, my lovely friend!

I like this - I too would like to see an easier way to get to the archived entries.

Hi Stranger,

I've been running! I'm now in Texas visiting my 1 month old grandson and daughter. Will be heading to Florida from here. Will you guys be around for the next couple of weeks?

Wonderful blog, Dana. I like the design and color scheme. I will be sure to come by from time to time to see what you are up too.

Best wishes,

Gail from Virginia

Written between shivers, think there is something icy out there that doesn't want us to stay warm. First we almost run out of heating due to weather, now the heating boiler has broken down. Valentine's Day, warm hearts maybe but definitely cold hands!! A day to stay frozen in memory, send us some sunshine please.

Dana, I'm so glad you found me again! I keep losing track of you, and you know how much I love your blog!

I have an new graddaughter! Her name is Aubrey Isabella (after her grandmother). (Aubrey is Jeff's great-grandfather) She is my daughter's first child. I'm flying to Nashville this afternoon.

Great site. You amaze me. Hope all is well with you & John.

Hi Mom. Looks great. The kids (including your son) misses you. They want to go to Nana's house. We miss you and John and of course, Taffy. Hope you had a great Valentines Day. Love,
