Valentine’s Day Love List

Servers who give you an extra sausage roll to apologize for making you wait

Hand-knitted things, home-sewn clothes

Wearing thick socks and sweaters and waterproof boots and a jacket and walking in the rain until your jeans are completely soaked and your hair is plastered to your head.

The blossoming of Ethan’s terrifying intellect, and my conversations with him

Rachel’s stories

Turtles (the chocolate kind)

Reminiscing with Firefly (about the beginning of our friendship, about New York, working together and how far we’ve come in five years)

Strangers who banter really easily

Fresh blueberries

The way people make sharing their music with you an act of hospitality and connection.

Soft, brightly coloured pashminas

Putting Hannah to bed with extended baby cuddles

Almond croissants

The dust smell of the prairies

Big skies

Fuzzy socks

Beads and assorted sparkly things

Big plans for the future

Beers with Ian
