spt


the month of love has rolled around again. i have been trying to channel my friend carlo's "love of all things love" lately. we don't "do" valentine's in a big way around my house, but i certainly "love" finding bits and pieces of "lovely" inspiration around the blogosphere.

when i say we don't "do" valentine's around my house, i mean that it often comes on quickly and we end up treating it like Income Tax Day - worth a mention at dinner, but nothing remarkable! the holiday that celebrates our feelings for each other certainly deserves a little attention! cristin is going all out and doing 14 days of valentine's for her family!! isn't that wonderful? surely i can make a better effort.

i'm choosing, though, to focus on the love that exists in my marriage. to spend some time really communicating with the love in my life. our relationship deserves more than perfunctory dinner conversation, doesn't it? with "the day" falling on a saturday this year, there's always the chance we might actually make a date of it. but in case that doesn't happen, i'm prepared to spend this month sharing some meaningful moments together. and that includes meaningful self portraits!! (did i just hear a collective gasp of horror from the significant others out there?!?)
