Roses and tea . . . and a cupcake . . . oh, and a poem!

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.

If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.

prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.

Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.

Then while we live, in love let’s so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

“To My Dear and Loving Husband”
—Anne Bradstreet



Beautiful poem Maria, I think I will recite it to Alejandro too.
Your setting is gorgeous, romantic and sweet love.
Lovely details and dishes.
I'm sure you had a romantic Valentine's con tu cariñito.
Abrazos y besos,

Oh, so sweet, Maria! Especially knowing both of you! I'm sure it was a happy Valentine's Day. Your table is so sweet and romantic! Hoping to see you both in the spring if you visit Ohio! ~Zuni
