Valentine’s Day the 18th Century Way

It’s Valentine’s Day and, of course, I am celebrating the 18th-century way.

Yes, love was celebrated by our forefathers and mothers with love notes being a favorite token to give to sweethearts.

The love notes were often in the way of puzzle purses, popular in the 18th and 19th century.

Join me as I share with you not only this tradition, but why I encourage you to send yourself a love note this day! Yes, send yourself a Valentine’s Day message. It’s not selfish, it’s important to love ourselves.

Speaking Words of Love

It’s Valentine’s Day at Old Stone Well Farm in Vermont. While I am dealing with a broody hen, I think about the broodiness in this world where our words and actions often don’t reflect the love of God. Our lives are filled with so much chatter…but are we speaking words of love or just making noise?

How will you speak words of love this day and in all your days to come?
