It's that time of year again - Valentine's Day. It's my favorite holiday, except for my birthday which is not a "holiday" but I still celebrate it for weeks!
Valentine's Day has always meant a lot to me because it's the one time of year that we all get to acknowledge the people that we love & are important to us. Some people find Valentine's Day sappy or commercial, but I don't. For me, it's a day to celebrate caring, giving & sharing with those that are special to me in my life.
This year, Valentine's Day means even more to me because I am lucky enough to be in the city that I love, talk about, obsess about, pine over, compare to all others & miss - my true home... NYC!
Talking to some friends they suggest that since moving to Suburbia I may have over romanticized my love affair with NYC. I'm not so sure about that, but still it gave me something to think about (like I need MORE to think about)! Anyway, for me it reminds me of when you are dating someone & really look forward to that date. You are so excited about that date & want everything to go right, but there's always a little doubt that maybe it won't be as good as you're anticipating. I sometimes think perhaps my "date" with NYC will not go as well as I remember or plan & maybe our "relationship" may finally be over... but every time I'm here, it only gets better!
And speaking of getting better, this year my husband (that's right our first Valentine's Day being married) & I are renewing our vows in Times Square! Wow, so how's that for a date? What's Love Got To Do With It? Absolutely everything.
