Sweet Valentine Wishes

 💞💕💞💞💕💞

Walk into my foyer and wrap yourself in sweet valentine wishes.

Postcards from the turn of the 20th Century adorn my flocked Valentine Tree.

            

Turn into the study for some digital inspirational graphics.  

 

Travel to my kitchen. Do you smell the aroma of cookies baking?



I honor the first  two generations of Italian bakers in my family and their valentine cookie cutters in the Note of Love poem below.


My 4-year-old granddaughter now makes the fifth generation of women bakers
who rolls the dough and carefully places cookies on a baking sheet for family delights.

It's Tuesday Slice of Life, the day after Valentine's Day this week.
I join Two Writing Teachers, a Meeting Place for Reflective Teachers,
with Valentine greetings for all.

  1. Carol, it is so wonderful that your granddaughter is following in the footsteps of those bakers who came before her. She has a guide who will show her all of the secrets and share delicious recipes with her. I also like the idea of your Valentine tree. What a great way to display vintage as well as new Valentine wishes.

    1. I am delighted that Granddaughter #1 is so invested in our baking tradition. I even bought her small baking tools for Christmas. The little 2-year-old just loves to bring the step stool over to the counter to watch and of course, to get a lick of the dough.

    1. Fran, I missed your comment last week. Granddaughters are so special and now you have two to light up your heart. Have a heart-filled day. I'm off to add my slice to Two Writing Teachers.
