Tale as old as Time

Cobalt and I saw Beauty and the Beast at the movie theater tonight. It was amazing, particularly because it has been over 10 years since I last saw it. With that movie and Cobalt and I working hard on planning our wedding, love has been on my mind a lot. Apparently love has also been on the mind of our insane Mayan Love Pepper plant which didn’t decide to sprout fruit until long after it started snowing outside. We’ve been dutifully taking care of it, letting it sit in the sun inside our warm house and putting it outside during any warm days. Cobalt even took it home over the holidays to make sure it was happy! Then yesterday, we noticed that one of its only two peppers had turned red, a sign that it is ripe. Just goes to show that you can always find love in the most unexpected of places, in the form of a beautiful girl falling in love with a hideous beast or even in the form of ripe heart shaped peppers in the middle of winter…
