Happy Valentines' Day!
Today is a normal work day, but Curtis and I are going to make dinner at home, drink a bottle of wine that we ordered months ago, and (hopefully - if the mix arrives today) enjoy some Sprinkles Red Velvet Cupcakes! (shhh... don't tell Curtis, he never reads this blog and doesn't know that I ordered the mix!)
Perhaps it is because of my memories of V-Day in schools, giving valentines to every classmate (do they still do that?), or the fact that this is my 11th Valentines' Day with Curtis, or the fact that we are now far from our family and friends, that today I really feel quite drawn to looking at the day in the context of ALL of the people that I love, not just Curtis (no worries, he gets most of my love). I'm thinking a lot about my friends, when I will get to see them again (some in April, some later), and of my family, both close and extended.
So, if you're reading this, know that I love and admire you, and that I hope you and your families and friends have a wonderful valentines' day. I hope to see you soon.
