My Valentine.

People tend to be polar opposites when it comes to Valentine’s Day. They either love it or they hate it. I’ve heard some say that Valentine’s Day is a day for women, in that they get showered in candy and flowers and guys don’t really get into the spirit of this holiday. Others say that it’s all a bunch of bunk and they don’t need the sentiments and they certainly don’t need the love, they’ll do fine on their own. And still others are hopeless romantics; going out to dinner, exchanging gifts with their partner and cozing up together in the hot tub before calling it a night.

Want to guess which category I fit in?

I am very fortunate to have found the love of my life. Even after almost 10 years, there’s no doubts, no worries and no turning back.

When we took this picture back in 1997 just after our first year anniversary, we were just beginning. We were still getting to know each other. Here it is almost a decade later and I can still say “we’ve only just begun.” Life is a wild ride and I’m honored to say that I have the perfect co-pilot.
