All The Single Ladies

small heartWhen I was single, I never really liked the idea of Valentine’s Day.  I did find ways to make it fun most of the time.  In my 20’s I was teaching, so I’d make treats for the kids in my classroom.   In my 30’s, my sister Judy and I (both single at the time) would spend the time together usually making ourselves a nice dinner and exchanging cards and candy.  Finally, in my 40’s I got married, and now I have a date every year for Valentine’s.

We ate, we drank, we laughed, and wished each other a future filled with love…and chocolate.  Today’s thank you goes out to Liz, Helena, Carrie, Natalie, Tracy, and anyone else who shared that Valentine’s Day with us!
