Three Posts From My Corner of The Blog-o-sphere That I Especially Heart

(a rather dim photo of the white chocolate buttercream cake which ended our dinner tonight)
While it was a truly lovely day with my class (what can top homemade cards, decorated envelopes, and the joy of opening warm thoughts from one's classmates?) I read three posts this morning which I liked so much I had to share them with you.

The first was from Parrish, who wrote a poem for his love. It can be found here, and it will surely move you.

The second was from Andi, who wrote of books which broke her heart. My favorite from her list was Room, but check out her thoughts on other moving novels.

The third is from Arti, who wrote of  Graham Greene's The End of The Affair because it goes without saying that not every Valentine's Day can be filled with love.

I wish a late Happy Valentine's Day to you, friends, one and all. Cyber kisses from me to you, even though at this late hour my lipstick is rather faded. xoxoxo

p.s. Just visited this lovely site brought to my attention by Shoreacres. Thank you, Linda!

  4. Have a blessed, love-filled year, Bellezza! Thanks for the link. The End of the Affair just shows how much we need to work on our marriage, and to realize that love isn't perpetual romance and excitement. The everyday, mundane trivialities of the home is our life and reality... cultivate that for our joy and contentment. And let these novels and movies remain as our entertainment. :)

  5. Thanks so much for sharing, Bellezza! After my post about books that broke my heart, I had my heart warmed when my toddler brought his first Valentine's box home from school. :D

  6. Thanks for sharing these links, Bellezza. Love that poem! My husband wrote one for me a few years ago that I posted yesterday. Or meant to. Stupid Blogger. It's there now. :)

  7. Thanks for the link, my wife still has a book of poetry, I wrote for her when we were courting over 18 years ago & although it's a bit old & battered she still has it.

  9. Who could resisit the cheese cake?

    I read The End of the Affair a long, long time ago.
    That was the time when I was reading all of the novels of Graham Greene. I started with the The Power and the Glory.

    Post Valentine 's Day joyous greetings.
