Valentine’s Day

February 10, 2022

My favorite holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day. My husband is terrible at remembering our other special days like birthdays or anniversaries, but he never misses Valentine’s Day. He’s knocked it out of the park every time. Most times, it’s a sweet popup card.

Sometimes, it’s a fabulous box of chocolates. The box is actually made of chocolate from the local outlet of Schakolad Chocolate Factory. The Belgium-style treats are incredible.

And other times, it’s the whole shebang – card, flowers, and a box of chocolates. I look forward to sharing these sweets with my sweetie.

However, there’s one more sweet reason to love this day. My youngest son was born on Valentine’s Day. That was an unforgettable day.

You’ve read my take on the holiday, now it’s your turn. What will you give to your Valentine?

My Paint & Shine Mysteries are set in the Daniel Boone National Forest. My parents were born, raised, and now rest in the Adams Family Cemetery in Wolfe County, Kentucky. The characters spend a lot of time preparing traditional southern meals and creating moonshine cocktails. Please consider buying local. Independent bookstores need your help during this challenging time.

  1. I leave big reminders for anniversaries, otherwise, my husband would forget. Those are super sweet Valentine’s Day treats.

  2. One of the casualties of the pandemic in our house was the giving of cards and other small gifts. This year, we’re going to have a special dinner (at home) and the last of the carrot cake we made for my birthday. It’s so good and worth the wait!

  3. I’ll be visiting my husband in the rehab center where he’s staying to recover from a bad fall. It’s a sad Valentine’s Day for us this year but I have many happy memories to sustain me. V-Day is when he proposed.

We love to hear from you! Leave a Reply
