Valentine's Day, 2020

Valentine's Dinner at our neighborhood deli

Larry and I have a tradition of making home-made Valentines for each other. We've been doing this for almost 30 years. We started out with doilies, construction paper and paste. Over the years, with the advent of Photoshop, etc. we've graduated to digital Valentines.
Usually, we each choose a romantic or meaningful theme for our cards. This year, Larry chose the movie that impacted us both, "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood."  During the filming in the summer of 2018, Larry went to the sets on Hollywood Boulevard and photographed the extensive revival of 1969 Hollywood Boulevard. He took the shot below from a nearby parking structure.  Director, Quentin Tarantino's team totally brought back the Hollywood of our youth, including neon signs, store-fronts, automobiles, bus bench ads and more. Larry captured the neon of yesteryear and personalized it JUST FOR ME!

My Valentine for Larry this year was geographical too. I snapped a shot of LittleJohn's House of Toffee candy store at the Original Farmers Market and personalized it just for Larry! The motto written on a sign at the Farmers Market says, "Meet Me at Third and Fairfax." My little pun for LittleJohn's candy store is, "SWEET Me at Third and Fairfax!"
Ellen's Valentine to Larry, 2020
I included a small bag of English Toffee from LittleJohn's for Larry. The Toffee was perfect after our casual dinner at our local deli! I hope you had a great Valentine's Day too!
