Happy Valentine’s Day!

Can I tell you a secret?

I don’t think I’ve ever written a story that had Valentine’s Day in it.  Christmas, birthdays, thanksgiving, even Easter, but I have never had any Valentine’s Day scenes.  Kind of weird for a romance writer.

But, I am not really big into Valentine’s Day or big ooey gooey romantic gestures in real life.  I love them in fiction, but I don’t want them to happen to me.  (I know, I’m weird).

My husband and I usually exchange presents.  Sometimes I make heart shaped baked goods, but overall it’s just not like super romantic, and I like it that way.

Now that I have a son, I do want to do more for Valentine’s Day.  I mean, it is a day to celebrate love and I don’t think that’s relegated to only romantic love.  As a romance writer, I do think love is one of the most powerful things out there, so celebrating love is important. And if the celebration isn’t ooey gooey?  That’s Ok!
