Yes, it’s the day to celebrate the love in your life, whether it’s your soul mate, your family members, or your current love interest. I have so many wonderful Valentine’s Day memories it’s hard to pick a favorite. I remember receiving a valentine from a boy in grade school that I didn’t even know, and another time, a flower from a secret admirer. Do you remember making those Valentine’s Day mailboxes to sit on your desk? I do, and I remember when our school made the rule we had to bring a valentine for everyone in the class, which, really should have been in place all along. After all, that is just commonsense.
I remember helping my sons fill out their valentines and attach candy to each one, and reading through the ones they’d received when they got home from school. I still have some of the wonderful homemade cards the boys gave me over the years. My hubby has surprised me many times over the years with flowers, candy, one year it was a puppy, (but that’s a whole other story) and wonderful evenings out. As we’ve aged, we’ve discovered it’s more fun to stay home and cook a special meal together rather than find a place that still takes reservations. I truly detest those little buzzing boxes restaurants provide waiting customers. My most special Valentine’s Day was probably the one he gave me a new wedding ring set. I had lost the diamond out of my original set and instead of replacing it, as he said he was doing, he surprised me with a new set.
I plan on spending this special day doing one of the things I love most. Writing. I’m making wonderful progress on my latest WIP and in completing the edits on my contracted stories. The first of which will be released in May—the title is yet to be determined, but Wildcat Bride, the fifth Quinter Bride book will be released on April 1st.
I’m off now, to the mountains of Colorado where I left my hero and heroine searching for the Wanda Lou gold mine. I hope each of you has a wonderful day, filled with many pleasures and expressions of love from those you treasure.
