Love List

Love has been on my mind. And seeing as it is Valentine's Day, I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that I love lately:

1) I'm in love with this picture...  
We traveled to Chicago at the beginning of February for the baptism of our niece, Kate, and were able to share in the ceremony as her godparents.  I have known many types of love in my life, as a wife, daughter, sister and friend, but loving Kate as a goddaughter ads a new and cherished dimension to that emotion.  

I feel so full of gratitude that I was able hold Kate in my arms while she was baptized.  It was a powerful reminder that love, in it's many forms, is one of God's greatest gifts. 

2) Paperless Post continues to be my favorite online resource for cute cards and notes. If you're looking for a last minute, not to mention eco-friedly, collection of greetings today- they have you covered.  

3)  Because it is Valentine-hued, healthy and easy to make, I'm in love with beet hummus.  Its a nice change of pace from the regular store-bought variety. Simply blend in the food processor 4 {cooked and cubed} beets, 1 Tbsp of cumin, 2 Tbsp of tahini, 1 garlic clove, the zest and juice of 2 lemons and S&P to taste.

I hope that the love you feel today, in whatever form that takes, fills your heart too.
