Celebration: Spreading the Love

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Do you have any plans? Have you created a Valentine’s Day wish list? I think the traditional gifts of chocolates  and flowers are just perfect. Beyond these things, gifts from the heart (or with hearts!) are irresistible now or at any time of the year, so you can scoop up goodies like the ones below and gift them to your loved ones (or yourself) throughout the year.

The Friday Five: Staying Warm

Oh my goodness. It feels like -30C this morning. What?! How do you stay warm during these days of frigid temperatures? Here are five of the ways I’m staying warm (or trying really hard to).

1. I wear layers of wool sweaters. This week I’ve discovered that wearing two wool sweaters is much better than wearing one.

2. My office is fairly cold, so I keep my space heater on for most of the day. At home, I keep my house at about 72F and it’s working out well.

3. I love blankets, so I make sure there’s always one (or several) within reach of my seat on the couch.

4. Tea. Coffee. Mulled wine. Warm drinks of any kind are a must.



5. Boots. I don’t think I can live without my Sorel boots and UGGs. Happy feet. The. Best.
