Send In The Clowns

Gosh, I love the figure skating at the Winter Olympics. I even love the squabbling about the scoring and the judges. But I really love getting to see beautiful skaters who know how to dance.

Like Patrick Chan. His short program was exquisite.

And Yuna Kim. Her short program was perfect.

Or that moment in Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford's short program, where he pulls her through his legs and she ends up sitting in his arms? Adorable.

And I loved Akiko Suzuki's dress, which made me call my sister so we could discuss how much our mother would have liked it.

What was your favorite Olympic skating moment?

Love Is In The Air

Yes, I am a sucker for Valentine's Day. I love sending out handmade cards to friends and family. For Christmas, my sister-in-law gave me a pack of die-cut oversized cardboard "Rolodex" cards. They demanded that I turn them into Valentines.

Rubber-stamps, happy tape, cut-up foil doilies, et voila!

Happy Valentine's Day. May yours be full of love, and chocolate if that's your thing.
