Since Thursday is Valentine’s Day, many people consider this the week of Love. Here in Appalachia there will be teddy-bears, candy, and roses galore given to those who are loved-or who are at least greatly desired for this moment in time.

Aren’t Alyce and Drew one of the most lovely couples you’ve ever seen?
