I’m spending Valentine’s Day with and by myself, baking and drinking steaming hot tea and sewing and listening to swing music. For me, Valentine’s Day isn’t the commercial horror-that-should-be-erased-from-this-earth that everybody rants about (and I’m also a little bit tired of all the people referencing to “pagan horny werewolf day”. Yawn.). I take this day as a wonderful opportunity for radical self-love (thank you, Gala Darling, for this term!), and why not? Sending yourself holiday cards is one of the best things you can do.
The artwork of the Valentine’s card on the picture is by the incredibly talented Jolly Rotten, and you can find it here.
The muffins are standard with a bit of cocoa, even less clove and cinnamon and some lemon peel and grated chocolate. They make me think of My Father’s Glory and My Mother’s Castle, somehow.
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? And if yes, how?
