♥️ Happy Valentine's Day, 2023.

Love is in the air--at home,

and everywhere for the braves

who dare to love and care.

Fate seals their faith for love sings

and stings so you laugh and cry

with and at this euphoric phenomenon

that gives humans the highest bliss

and ardor tested hearts can testify.


Food usually seals the deal whether for two or with family and friends. Food is the centralizer that delights butterfly hearts and paces conversations whether dinners, brunches or exotic beverages even when a diamond is MIA. 🌹
