I’m married to a romantic. Perhaps it’s because he was born on St. Valentine’s Day that he has this much-appreciated streak. And being his birthday, we tend not to celebrate the day like most others do. Rather, there are many romantic days scattered throughout our years together. I remember them for the time we shared together, the laughs, the deep conversations, the kisses. I don’t remember most of the gifts he gave me, and thankfully I’ve never received a giant stuffed toy holding a satin heart. That would not tell me of his love as his words and actions could. There is one special gift I remember receiving. It was many years ago, before we were married. He gave me a gold pen, to use while writing the love letters he loved to receive. Perfect.
So I wish you a Happy Clutter-free Valentine’s Day.
