Valentine’s Day to me is the world of marketing all coming together to remind everyone who has ever met me that my birthday is coming! I’m sort of kidding.
As a child I was special because I was born on the day of Love! This special feeling lasted until…. well to be really honest I’m still feelin it.
My Mom and Dad both made a big deal about my birthday and we always celebrated me being their ‘love child’.
I loved the whole idea of sending a Valentine to the boy you had a crush on and hoping he reciprocated. It took a lot of nerve to actually put the card in the mailbag.
I don’t know if being born on Valentine’s Day is why I love romance but it sure helps.
I will spend the day ballroom dancing, flirting, meeting in secret places for just one passionate kiss and when the oven buzzer goes off and I find myself standing in the kitchen, not the woods with a white horse and ridiculously handsome man next to me, I will take the cupcakes out of the oven and watch my two love children ice them with pink frosting. Perfect!
