Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,
It's that season when they say love is in the air, and we hope you are spending time with someone you love, whether that means celebrating Valentine's Day or Galentine's Day, or just taking a day to yourself to nap and catch up on reading. At the Inkubator, we love publishing debut puzzles, and we're thrilled to bring you this one, by Allegra Kuney. We think you'll find it lightly challenging and delightfully revealing!
Allegra is thrilled to be making her debut in the Inkubator! A media studies grad student in Queens, New York, Allegra also writes, makes music, and attempts to cook Chinese food, sometimes successfully. She would like to thank Laura and Tracy for their encouragement, her many crossword mentors, and her parents for forcing her to try solving NYT Mondays even when she thought they were hard and boring. Find her on Twitter at @allegramiriam.
When you're done solving, check out Diary of a Crossword Fiend for a write-up and discussion, every Friday after an Inkubator puzzle is published. For general updates, follow us on twitter at @InkubatorXWords, and visit our website. Thanks to all of our subscribers for your continuing support, feedback, and kindness!
Coming up next, in just one week, on February 20: a bonus themeless from Mary Lou Guizzo.
Much love,
Laura and Tracy
