valentine's day, observed

A blog is a powerful tool.

It has the power to make people laugh…make people cry…and bring people together. Sometimes it even has the power to change the days of the calendar.

My husband gave me a potted orchid and a box of chocolates when he came home tonight. It was unexpected. Valentine’s Day had passed. But I wasn’t going to complain. Just like the character in my book, I have a special fondness for white orchids. And like every woman I know…I love chocolate.  I do have to ask myself, though…could my day-after-Valentine’s Day presents have anything to do with the blog I wrote last night?

Whether or not he was influenced by my blog, I was still thrilled to get flowers and candy. If that makes me easy, I’m ok with that. I didn’t nag him…remind him…or chastise him for forgetting. So a day late or not, the sentiment was there.

And a happy women is a never a bad thing.

Until the next time…I’ll be eating candy in my Eddie Bauer sweatshirt!
