As I have said before, I don’t have a holiday, but if I did, it would be this one. This world can be stressy and crazy and maddening at times, and one of the things that makes it not only worthwhile, but a true joy, is the companionship of lovers, partners, spouses, and close friends. Today is a day to appreciate those people, whether you’re married to them, domestically partnered, civilly united, common-law married, cohabiting, or just grateful to have them in your lives. It’s also a day to remind ourselves of the things we do to make other people’s lives better, and to try to continue to do those things as much as we can. You don’t need flowers or chocolates, fancy dinners or presents. Today is about love, however you want to express it.
And so of course, I can’t make a Valentine’s Day post without mentioning my dear husband Kit. We’ve been married over two years, together for thirteen, and I’m so grateful to have him in my life for more reasons than I can enumerate. He keeps me grounded, challenges me to be a better fox, and loves me no matter what. Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie. *smooch*
And Happy Valentine’s to all of you! I am eternally grateful for all my fans, in blog comments and FA comments and at conventions and on podcasts. You guys give me lots of love and that really helps me keep going. Many <3 to you today. Now go pass those <3 along. :)
