After yesterday’s loooong and lovey-dovey post — I just couldn’t help it; the Chef and I are getting married! — this one will be brief.

I have only this to say about the mussels the Chef is making at his restaurant right now, the ones with cream, Dijon mustard, and fresh rosemary:

    I KNEW you’d be inundated yesterday. This wonderful news is a storybook ending on a whirlwind year for you and a storybook beginning to the rest of your life.

    My sincerest congratulations and admiration to you and Danny.

    All the best, as always,

    My DH put my engagement ring in a GF bowl of mussels. I keep telling him that we need to go back to that restaurant so that I can look for the matching earrings… But we also talk about growing older together and the romance of finding our TEETH in the mussels…

    Congratulations Shauna, to a lot of more happiness!
    And those mussels! Yum! I have been eating many in the last few days, not sure why, but I have been craving them!

    Thank you so much. If this weren’t all so real, I might feel as though I’m living in a storybook! Thank goodness, it’s much more imperfect than that.


    I love that image of your teeth in the mussels. And that’s an interesting man you have there — proposing with a bowl of mussels. Lucky girl.


    Thank you. This has all been quite overwhelming, I must say.


    I have to tell you, I could eat these mussels of the Chef every day of the week. It makes sense to me, your daily desire to devour them.

    I realize it’s been years since you wrote this, but I stumbled upon it because I’m getting “yes” tattooed on my wrist, too, and I wanted to say–what a beautiful story, and what pure, beautiful writing–reading this post has blessed my day.
