Valentine’s Day

Dear Liza,

Flowers from Grandpa Nelson

I hope your Valentine’s Day at your new school was fun. After a busy day that included a visit from an electrician, shopping, and lots of baking, we had a nice evening out at Bread and Ink Cafe down on Hawthorne.

Our local house of deliciousness……

We bundled up, because it is still very cold here, and walked through our lovely neighborhood. I love that people leave their holiday lights up on their porches year round…they always look like there’s a party, and on these long dark evenings, that helps chase the blues away.

Auntie Bridgett being silly….

Bread and Ink served us wonderful Ciopinno, Salade Nicoise, French fries, and a wonderful local wine, with chocolate and orange cake for dessert. The restaurant was packed for the holiday, but we had good service nonetheless.

A fabulous Salade Nicoise
Handsome Grandpa Nelson…

I love that our Trouple has celebrated twelve Valentine’s Days, with many more to come. I love my people very much.

And me!

Love you, too, kiddo.

Grandma Judy
