This blog is dedicated to my daughter, and I’m hoping she’ll find it interesting one day, when she’s old enough. But she’ll probably find this post right here and give me this look. This is clearly just my opinion, but house plants are sexy. House plants and eleven other things. Please feel free to agree.
In honor of Valentine’s Day…
#1 White sheets.

Very nice! But may I add napes and ankles. The intrigue and mystery of looking at napes and ankles tells chapters of who it belongs to. Almost like palm reading but more for the senses. @Angel Cebu City
Angel, thanks for your comment. Ankles and napes yeah? This thread is getting very interesting 🙂
At 67, I still had to read your article …the title is enticing and the article is interesting. Though I do not like beards nor plants …flowers yes !!! ….Sylvia P. Tarlac
I believe I know one incredible Sylvia P from Tarlac 🙂 Tita, are you kidding me?! No beards?!
May I add Spectacles to this list… Nothing is sexier than a bespectacled man or woman, reading a book or newspaper with a cup of joe in hand. That effortless look of Age and Wisdom, albeit from afar sometimes purely imagined, is just so damn sexy! 🙂
