my best valentine ever today: my dear, dear friend jeanne is in town! laughter, fabulous conversation, and sushi: a recipe for happiness. she and her husband are my secret (well, not so much) role models for a great and dynamic marriage -- not *perfect*, because nobody's is -- but the kind of self-renewing partnership-in-crime i hope to find one day. will someday write a post giving away their secrets to success.
and as a little valentine to send out into the world, a bit of not-on-etsy-but-still-handmade blog love to whitney and jonathan speir, the couple behind brown sugar design, who make *beautiful* letterpress and custom printed goods -- thank you for the link!
