Be My Valentine

Although I have never been one for the color pink, and the “heart” is my least favorite, anatomically-incorrect, geometric shape…there still remains a soft spot in my calendar for the holiday of Saint Valentine.

A day to celebrate adoration, passion, affection, ardor and devotion. What’s not to “love”?
