In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.

In all the world, there is no love for you like mine. - Maya Angelou

What does it mean to be loved? Is love a feeling, an action, a commitment, or an emotion? In the Greek language, there are multiple meanings and words that describe love: eros (romantic love), philia (brotherly love, storge (parental-family love), agape (selfless love), ludus (playful love), pragma (mature love), and philautia (self-love). For February, we have some thoughtful features on these different forms of love and thought you might love them too!

Eros Love | Romantic Wedding

This dreamy wedding scene featured at Devils Thumb Ranch combines soft and neutral tones in a variety of subtle colors from blush to warm grey-blue. The bride wore a strappy romantic wedding dress in creamy white, and the groom wore a light cream-blush suit to compliment her. We loved how these colors brought in the beauty of the surrounding landscape. These same tones are displayed within the reception table linens, florals, and tableware. To soften up the Timberhouse room, hide rugs, fur throws, and velvet pillows were placed in lieu of chair pads to add warmth to the dining table and thoughtful touches to the outdoor lounge. The tall floral statement piece is a combination of dried floral and fluffy floral blooms. Each stem was carefully selected for texture and tone to marry the overall look to perfection. For each place setting, we used the following items from our rental collection: Ora Hand Glazed Plate, Skandia Matte Gold Flatware, Rosa Wine & Water Glasses, Julius Mirror Glazed B&B Plate, Emma Ecru & Gold Bowl, Maxwell Gold Etched Coupe, and Blush Twist Coupe Glass. We hope you love the combination as much as we do.

Agape Love | Harriet

I recently watched the movie "Harriet", the story of heroic abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The screenplay shares her escape from slavery and the dangerous missions she led to liberate hundreds

of slaves through the Underground Railroad. The role of Harriet is played by Cynthia Ervio, nominated for best actress in 2020. I believe to appreciate the hardships of others, we must be able to see ourselves in their shoes and wonder, how would I respond? I highly recommend you watch this movie. It's very compelling on so many levels and a perfect example of Agape Love.


Directed by Kasi Lemmons | Nominations - Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role | Producers - Gregory Allen Howard, Debra Martin Chase, Daniela Taplin Lundberg | Screenplay by Kasi Lemmons, Gregory Allen Howard

Philia Love | Border Wall Seesaw

I love this expression of creativity and community wrapped in this very clever art installation. Can you imagine the conversations that took place between the bars that were meant to create division?

Growing up in Minnesota, as a young girl, Christmas time was always a bright moment to celebrate during the long winter season. My family's Norwegian Christmas traditions were what made the season bright. Central to the Norwegian way of life is the idea of koselig (koosh-lee). Koselig means multiple things, but the primary idea is the feeling of drinking hot chocolate beside a warm fire with friends and family after coming in from the cold nordic winter.

This sense of community, belonging and warmth is something we all crave. Sharing the things that make us feel good with the people who make us feel good is koselig. It is a celebration of finding joy, happiness, and warmth from others in spite of a turbulent world. This holiday season we hope you find Koselig and wish you and yours God Jul!

My family's proud Norwegian traditions have been passed down for generations. Our holidays have also been centered around baking and treats. My grandmother and mom would follow the Norwegian tradition of baking seven kinds of cookies. We would go to Scandinavian markets to purchase Lefse and lingonberry jam, a treat that my great-grandmother would lovingly make for us. Also, during the holidays there were fried flower-shaped rosette cookies dusted in powdered sugar. Delicate krumkake grilled on intricate irons filled with whipped cream and strawberries. However, the most special of all was Kransekake. A cookie ring tower, with a champagne bottle inside, made for weddings and family Christmas celebrations. In the tribute of sharing traditions, we have included a family cookie favorite below to warm up your kitchen and home. As my grandmother would say, with a plate full of cookies on the table and a warm pot of coffee, "Var Sa God!" in Norwegian "Help Yourself!"

Orange Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cup white sugar

3 sticks of butter

2 egg (beaten)

1 Tbsp orange extract

4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp salt

...


Cream butter and sugar; add egg and orange extract. Sift flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Blend with a mixer or wooden spoon. Roll in balls and press with a fork or roll and cut into shapes. To decorate, sprinkle with sugar crystals before baking, or drizzle melted chocolate on top after baked and cooled. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

November Traditions

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude." - Denis Waitley

This year has brought so many twists and turns. It has been difficult at times to understand how 2020 could be filled with so many challenges. Yet, I see from the hardship, and pain of each obstacle this year, special moments and opportunities. Our need to adapt will often allow us to find a new and better way... many times if we embrace the change.


However you may be able to gather this year for Thanksgiving or the holidays, my hope is that you will find the joy in trying a new recipe, taking time to slow down, learn something new, be present with those near you, and discover the joy in giving back to someone else in need.
