Happy Valentine’s Day!

So my Valentine had to go out of town, but before he did he presented me with a lovely gift.  There is a wonderful store in Key West called Besame Mucho (their website doesn’t give a sense of their actual inventory), and I had shown him a few things there that I liked.  I received a beautiful necklace and scarf for my birthday and got some amazing earrings this morning before he left for the train station–not the ones below, but those are gorgeous, too, no?  I’m just saying.  They’re by Hortense; check out her shop for more goodies.  small_arrow_earing

Oh, and I gave up booze for Lent, just because, so I’ve had to find a new nightly vice.  Fortunately, four pints of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream arrived yesterday, because my husband “accidentally” put in an order for someone else twice.  Rather than cancel the second one, he sent it our way, and I’m glad he did, because it is the jam.  I really don’t even care about ice cream all that much (given my choice of desserts, I’d probably pick a brownie), but it is soooo goood and the flavors are insanely creative and vivid.  We got Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate, Bangkok Peanut (which is coconut-y and spicy), Wildberry Lavender, and Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk.  Hard to say which is my favorite–I think they all are.
