Ah, yes, have a wonderful Valentine Day, Ciel.

Your thoughts about books and bookstores were fascinating. I think most of us mix independents, big box bookstores and Amazon, depending on the books and our needs. I am still e-book free, though.

A charming sentiment, but we prefer one another's company to red hearts and chocolates. There is a decent bottle of Champagne handy, though.

Your patisserie has done a sweet job of window dressing.

[But don't ask me what I really think of V Day... it's similar to your thoughts. I spent two decades making the kind of decor in that window; it was fun business while it lasted. But it's NOT part of our couple culture. I can tell you I did not receive a box of chocolates today... or a rose. In fact, I don't think it even registered in the mind of my sweetie (who adores me) that is was V Day. And I've never understood why this was a "male buy for female" day. :-D ]

Halcyon said...

Happy Valentine's Day. Chocolate is the way to anyone's heart... or mine at least!

Kaori said...
