We celebrate the feast day of our Welsh equivalent to St Valentine today ~ Saint Dwynwen who is the Cymric patron saint of lovers. Her name means 'she who leads a blessed life' which is fitting as she chose to become a nun, dedicating her life to God.
A while ago I carved a tiny Love Spoon, (my effort is very crude and basic compared to what you see here!), from a small piece of driftwood, and although it was traditionally a young man who carved these to hopefully win the girl of his choice, I made mine to give to My Man because I love him so ~ he is very easy to love and I am blessed beyond my wildest hopes to have him choose to travel this path with me.
We will be travelling to Cardigan ~ where I was born ~ this morning, and visiting our favourite cafe for tea and tasty morsels. A meander around the galleries for soul~feeding eye candy and a search for thrifted goodies in the numerous charity shops; maybe finding a tree friend that would like a hug and generally doing things we love on this special day :~)
Hope you get to do things you love today ~
