Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day.  It’s not a holiday or celebrated day here – just any other day.  We don’t get the candy conversation hearts or heart shaped boxes with chocolates or roses delivered.

I remember when David and I were dating he would have roses sent to my place of work and take me out for dinner.  I would buy the conversation hearts that he enjoys and we would lovingly gaze at one another.
