i know it's cheesy and that some people have issues with valentine's day and call it "singles awareness day" . . . but i LOVE love!! and i think valentine's day can be used for loving all people - not just for romance.

so, go buy some chocolates for someone, make them a card, bring them flowers, call and have a singing telegram or a barbershop quartet show up at your best friend's job and sing them a song. take a bubble bath and sip champagne all by yourself.

i promise it wont suck.

but for me?

i'm going out with my man. it's almost our 6 1/2 yr wedding anniversary (if one were to mark dates this way) . . . and for him, i give you a quote from one of my favorite poets:

"when i am with you, we stay up all night,
when you're not here, i can't go to sleep.
praise god for these two insomnias!
and the difference between them.

the minute i heard my first love story
i started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along."

~excerpt from "Music Master" by Jelaluddin Rumi
