Attack of the Heart on Valentine’s Day

Valentines Card - Sunlight On Two Roses In Love

So another Valentine’s Day. Sigh. I’ll have to admit this isn’t my favorite holiday. It’s become a rush to see who can be the most romantic, create the perfect moment to demonstrate love and spend an ungodly amount of money for flowers that die in a few days. (However, I do adore flowers. They make me happy.) Maybe it’s because my sweetie really doesn’t go all out for this day which makes me a little flippant about the whole thing. The other part is my husband tells me every day he loves me. What could be better? Although he thinks he’s a regular Romeo, but I see him more of an adorable John Candy in Uncle Buck. (Which by the way he swears the man should have gotten an academy award for the role.)

Yes, I like jewelry, chocolates, flowers, candle light dinners with soft jazz playing in the background (I’ve never had

one burning candle decoration against black background

that but…) and dressing up for special occasions. But what I really like is a romantic surprise. Several years ago on a very hot day my husband came home with two antique Jewel Tea pitchers which I love. This particular design is one of my favorites but I won’t buy it for myself because it tends to be expensive. He had stopped at a yard sale, having spotted a table of old dishes earlier in the day when he drove by. Needless to say I was thrilled and sighed, “So romantic.” It’s the little things. Even now as I look at them from across the room then at him engrossed in his Clash of Clans game I think, “Yep. He’s a keeper.”

So this is how my Valentine’s Day played out; The hubby picked me up from a writer’s meeting and handed me a very pretty rose corsage, (I know! Old fashion and sweet.) a movie (Deadpool – loved it!) and a late lunch at Outback Steak House. Stopped at Office Depot to pick up a few things. (Writer’s Porn) Now I’m back at home waiting to watch the political debates. Yes. I actually enjoy watching them; sad but true. I’ll probably read after that (the latest Vince Flynn thriller) then maybe write as the snow and ice begins to pelt against the windows. All in all a really great day.
