naturally selectedThis *naturally* is my favorite Valentine's card for the year.  (Of course Darwin would have a Valentine, why wouldn't he?) 

Did you know this celebration was established in the year 496AD by Pope Gelasius to celebrate Saint Valentine?  It is one of our oldest traditions, and has been naturally selected to remain a favorite.  Despite the fact that studies show it is one of the most stressful days of the year for many.  Just shows that romance and love (and sex!) remain a priority for us all.

We celebrated with a wonderful dinner in which the awesome pairing of perfectly prepared Filet Mignon with Mayacamus Cabernet was once again confirmed :)

Cheers, hope *you* had a great Valentine's Day... Onward!
