St. Valentine's Day.
I like the 'pretty', and the being nice, and the pinkness that can light up a dull February day.
I love him. He loves me. End of love story. Or beginning. Or secret. It's so exciting.
Well it's exciting when you are a kid. Or an adult. Or is it just stressful? And anxiety ridden?
Is it actually fun? Or am I just B'ah Humbug? I think it used to be. When I was a kid!
When I was a teenager - it was filled with angst and terror. What if there was no Valentine - or my crush didn't crush on me? Oh the stress!
Pre-kids...well every day was like Valentines back then! Honest!
Every day was wine and roses. Well, there was probably wine.
But today - it's a different story. I want my kids to have fun and enjoy. I want them to feel the excited tingle of anticipation. And, yes. They will get a secret card. And, yes, it will be from me!
Happy Valentines day!
