How was it for you?

So? Did you get a mountain of Valentine cards?

Maybe you got all dressed up and went for a meal in a fancy restaurant, drank champagne and came home to a carpet of crushed rose petals leading the way to your bedroom where candles flickered and soft music played.
Nah, me neither!
I did get a card, flowers a new book to read (yay!) and some wine from my hubby which was perfect. Maybe after you've been married for almost 20 years life becomes more about paying bills, putting food on the table, clothes on your kids' backs and the daily grind than romance, so it's actually pretty nice that once a year you get a reminder of why you fell in love in the first place and what life's really about - family, connecting with someone, peace and contentment. Even 'though most people do it 'cause they feel they 'have' to, I bet that by the end of the day even the simplest of Valentine gestures ('Here, Love, let me cook dinner tonight') is enough to give us hope that romance isn't really dead - just a bit buried under reality!
