I sent R across the miles with a notebook tucked in his luggage. The message on the cover was perfect for a loved one so far from home on Valentine's Day.
Inside I copied out some recipes that will remind The Heiress of pancake breakfasts, snacks when she was little and afternoons spent baking while snowflakes filled the view from our kitchen windows.
Today will also be a day my husband will never forget, one he has anticipated for months. It has nothing to do with flowers, sparkling wine or decadent chocolates, it's a tour of Fuller's Brewery, and he is beyond excited. I couldn't be more pleased for him but it's his visit to this place just down the road that I'll be anxious to hear about.
