Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! You know, even though I write romances, I'm a bit of a curmudgeon about Valentine's Day. I like pink roses and chocolates as much as anyone, but come on--it's easy to be romantic one day a year, when there are ads all over the place to remind you. What about romance every day??? Or at least remembering to pick your dirty clothes up off the floor. :)
A couple of years ago, I made the mistake of agreeing to a blind date on this day. This year, I'm doing it right. Watching Shakespeare in Love for, oh, the 473rd time, and eating some of that spicy Choxie from Target. (BTW, a big, sarcastic Thanks A Lot to Kay for telling me about this stuff--I had to try it and now I'm addicted!)
Have a great day, with roses and chocolates and bears holding hearts! Let me know what your best Valentine's story is.
p.s. The pic is of my grandparents when they first got engaged. They were married 54 years, but I don't know if they ever celebrated a properr Valentine's Day. :)
