Last week a huge packet found its way into our mailbox. It came from Terri in USA, and was filled with Valentine goodies. Valentine is a new celebration in Norway, and I had asked Terri several questions about the day. Is Valentine a day created and kept alive by the trade, just for money, or is it more than that? Is the day really about love?
Terri could tell me that money and trade is secondary, the day is really about love, and she told me stories from her childhood Valentine celebrations.
Now Terri is paying love forward, helping me to create good and valuable memories for my family.
In the box was a cookie kit, and a few days ago Marta and I baked and decorated sweet Valentine cookies. This morning we ate them with our breakfast bread. Happy Valentine.
