Valentine’s Day is like a mini-party for romance authors. It’s a day when everyone gets what we do every day. Personally, I think those of us who love romance novels, authors and readers, every day is like Valentine’s Day. We know you don’t have to wait for the calendar to tell you that you should show or tell someone you love them.
Last night hubby and I went to dinner. It wasn’t anything extravagant or unusual, but it suited us. If you ever thought ‘Sand In Your Shorts’ was no fun, you haven’t been to Red Robin and sampled their drink. It was so yummy! (Yes, that’s a picture of it, after about two minutes!) My burger and fries were pretty spectacular too, but the best part was having some time with my honey. It’s rare that we have time to ourselves, but when we do, we enjoy it. We love our kids, but it’s nice to connect to each other too. We’re crazy grateful that our friends were willing to watch the kids for a few hours for us.
Even though my Valentine’s Day was pretty basic, I do have fantasies about the perfect Valentine’s Day date. What are they? Well, you’re going to have to wait and see. Over on Angela Scavone’s blog she’s asking romance writers about their perfect date. On February 23 you’ll get to see what mine would be!
I hope you have a great day with your loved ones today. It’s a perfect day to say I love you, I miss you, or I need you. But then again, so is every other day!
