Valentine’s Day is a day for love. What is love? This is how I know what love is. It’s actions, not words. Happy Valentine’s Day!

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” ~ 1 John 3:16-18

I had a very busy weekend, so I’m not inclined to do much walking today, so let’s just take a quick walk to a lovely butcher shop in Luxeuil-les-bains, Boucherie Giromagny. It doesn’t take many steps to get around the shop, but you’ll need to stop and take it all in anyway. Let’s get started!

I wish I could have some sort of scratch-and-sniff button for this post, but you’ll just have to imagine how wonderful it smelled. The hams hanging on the back wall are indigenous to this area. The meat here isn’t factory farm meat, but from the area and, I imagine, mostly or all organic.
