On this Valentine’s Day, may you find joy in the little things and be shamelessly and exuberantly in love with life.

Mail art, so cool! I’m a sucker for buying cute stationery and sharing it with friends through the mail, but I’ve never actually given the envelopes the scrapbook treatment. Cool idea.

Hello again! I hope you’ve all had a chance to check out the Making Mail documentary trailer. I can’t wait to see the film! I’ve been delinquint again in posting, but I’m proud to say that I did manage to get some holiday mail out this year. Surprisingly, I actually stuck to the same theme for all of my holiday mail, which never happens. I ended up using my new how-to books on masonry and electrical (thank you Savers!). Anyway, I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a very happy new year!
I gave up chocolate for the week, then proceeded to forget there was chocolate in the chicken mole enchiladas I had for dinner last night. Pure accident? I think not. Well, at least I’ve been eating more salad.
I’m blogging for work over at Westphoria this week, as part of Sunset magazine’s January Eat Fresh Challenge. Gave up chocolate for the week and it’s actually turning out to be not so bad. What I find myself craving is something with oodles of mouth-filling flavor … something spicy or just mouthwateringly savory. It makes me wonder: Is this why I snack on chocolate otherwise? To subconsciously fill a flavor void?

For the next workweek, whenever I’m craving some chocolate,
I’m going to eat something sweet and fresh like this fruit salad instead.
Maybe minus the candied ginger.
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. Fruit is my friend!
