Warwick: You know what I think is sexy?
Me: Oh God.
Warwick: No seriously, do you want to know?
Me: I have a feeling I’m not going to agree.
Warwick: Bills! Paying your bills on time.
Me: I was right.
Warwick: Or even better. . .paying more on your bills than what is due.
Warwick: Like. . .paying $200 on a $50 dollar bill. . .oh yeah. . .
Me: I don’t think that’s sexy at all. So don’t try to convince me.
Warwick: I’m not trying to convince you of anything. I just think it’s great that you value buying things we really want, over frivolous things.
Me: Yes. I’m so glad you said that. Because I want a very not frivalous new purse, perfume, and . . .jewelry.

He is my love. The one to whom I’ve pledged my life.
This morning, while he was standing in the kitchen, I’m sure I saw the face he would make if he were in a chivalrous dual, in which he had to fight to the end to save my life.
Fierce and focussed. Brows raised, jaw clenched, steady at the hand.
And he was eating a bowl of cereal.
Who says chivalry is dead?
Valentine Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
with Bananas and Cherry
2 rounded cups ice
1 cup vanilla coconut almond milk (for richer flavor try half and half)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 vanilla bean
Maraschino Cherry juice, to taste (I used about 3 TB)
Whipped Cream, optional
1. Slice the vanilla bean lengthwise. Using a knife scrape out seeds. Set aside.
2. Into a small bowl add milk and sugar. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
2. To a high-powered blender, add ice, milk/sugar mixture, banana, vanilla extract and vanilla bean seeds. Blend until frothy. Slowly add Maraschino Cherry juice until the smoothie is your favorite color pink. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
