Happy Valentine's Day to all! I hope that each of you has had a lovely day so far. Mine was made brighter by a couple of little surprises and three little grandchildren.
Having the kids here was not a surprise; I knew they were coming while their mom went to see her eye doctor. We had a fun morning making a Valentine craft
and reading books together, not to mention snacking on red grapes. It was a surprise, though, when, as they left, Julia (5) turned back and said so sweetly, "Have a happy Valentine's Day, Grammy!"
Last evening my hubby surprised me with a lovely bouquet of yellow roses (my favorite)! They are brightening up the kitchen island in my favorite strawberry pitcher. He took these photos for me:

|I arranged the roses in my favorite strawberry pitcher as it is just the right height -- has some yellow in the design too.|
But the most surprising surprise of all was waiting at my mailbox today. I got a free book from Taste of Home for having a recipe published in Simple & Delicious this past year.
