Happy Valentine's Day!!

Here's wishing you a day filled with love.
There are SO many things to love.
People, roses, chocolate-covered strawberries.
And a bit of the bubbly.
(A sappy card doesn't hurt either.)

I also love sock monkeys!!
Meet Luther. A very cool dude.
He listens to Los Lobos.

This is Lorna. She's the shy one.

Here's Lu Lu.
A real jokester and all around funny gal.

That's Bubba.
Bubba has a bad temper and a potty mouth.
He spends most of his day in time-out.

Here's Lovey.
She's the one that loves eeeeveryyybooody - even Bubba.

And in case you're wondering -
The chocolate on the strawberries is raw, (healthy!)
from a recipe in the fabulous book, Ani's Raw Food Desserts.
Deeelicious! I love that book and highly recommend it.
Enjoy the day, everyone!!

To my husband:
Thank you for your love.
Thank you for your kindness.
Thank you for your generosity.
Thank you for thinking I'm still
good-looking, after all these years.
Thank you for not wearing your glasses.
Love you!!

There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!

Signing off for now,


  1. What a great post. I only have live monkeys and we have to dress them and take them places...some people fondly refer to them as my grandkids. I love yours- much more do-able! Hugs-Diana ps...Bubba is my favorite!;>)

  4. Too cute and sweet. It's no surprise your husband still thinks you're good-looking because, glasses or not, you're beautiful, inside and out! And such an inspiration to be positive and kind and caring (to others and ourselves). You rock, Gabriele, and I hope your Valentine's Day did, too!
