Happy Valentine’s Day, Brooklyn; it seems the perfect time to share a quick story. When I first met my husband, one of the things he told me was that he did not celebrate #Valentinesday. I thought he was kidding. We had our first fight the night before #Valentinesday.
My first thought was, who does not like the day of Love? I was so mad at him that I made plans to go with my grandma to have dinner at her church. So imagine my surprise when I got out of the shower to find a beautiful card, roses, and chocolate on my bed on Valentine’s night.
I did not want to disappoint my grandmother, so I went to her church dinner. He was upset, and I thought, oh well [don’t judge me, lol].
Today my opinion of what Valentine’s Day should be has undoubtedly evolved. While I think we all should try to do something special on an actual day. I now know and understand that Love should be celebrated every day. We should not miss an opportunity to enjoy those special moments daily with those we love.
Today I wish us all a Happy #Valentinesday. Celebrate silly moments, laughter, sweet smiles, perfectly imperfect kisses, huge hugs, sweet text messages, and joyful moments. But let us do it for the rest of our lives today and every day.
We had another snowstorm today. I did not wake up to a beautiful card or beautiful orchids. And that is ok because I woke up to my husband’s kind smile and a deep knowing that I am loved every day.
Tonight we are having dinner at Fushimi Bayridge, and I’m sure we will laugh ourselves silly and have memories for years to come.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Brooklyn.
