Notes from the Heart...

This Valentine's Day, The Heart of New England celebrates its 4th birthday.  It is
hard to believe that we've been online this long since putting this together every
week still seems new and exciting to me.  It has truly been a labor of love for me.  
The best part of it all has been you -- my subscribers -- I appreciate your letters,
questions, comments, and your loyal following.  Thank you.  And Happy
Valentine's Day.  ~Marcia
