Ah, l’amore. Amore, die Liebe, love.
It’s that week of the year. The week where a good number men in the U.S. run around like chickens with their heads cut off hunting for the perfect gift and either spending way too much or chancing a dozen roses from some roadside vendor in a tent. Can you tell I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day? If you want to celebrate, please do, it’s just not something the hubby and I like to do.
I know some of you just raised your eyebrows and thought, wait, isn’t she a romance writer? I am! Thanks so much for noticing. 🙂 But for me, romance isn’t an expensive, candlelit dinner or glimmering diamonds set in sterling silver. It’s the journey which I sure hope lasts longer than one night a year! For me, I’d rather the hubby schedule a fancy dinner while we’re on vacation at someplace we wouldn’t normally go. Or something as simple as feeding the cats in the evening so they’re not slinking in and our of my legs as I’m trying to cook dinner.
What I want to know is how do you and your significant other celebrate your love? Is it a huge romantic gesture? Do you get roses delivered to work to make the other ladies jealous? Or do you eschew the day all together?
Let me know in the comments. Whatever or however you choose to celebrate, try to have a great week!
