Celebrating love today

Me and my sweetheart Steven, with some 
Valentine's Day bluebirds
(These photos were taken at
the Louvre by a friend who
lives in Paris.)

I feel so lucky to be with Steven. We celebrated Valentine’s Day a day early,
because we work tomorrow. So Steven brought me a delicious breakfast in bed,
and then brought his own breakfast up to join me so we could pretend we
were in a hotel and this was a room service breakfast -- something we love.

One big event was going to get a haircut – an adventure in the Time of Covid.
But teaching and working on Zoom means we have to try and look somewhat
presentable. I’m grateful to the woman who cut my hair -- it is too short, but it will
grow. And Steven looks fabulous.

We had a takeout lunch, in the car staring at the lake, enjoying the beauty of the
day at one of our favourite parks. I was in charge of dinner.  We dressed up in
going out to dinner clothes, and put a tablecloth on the table.  I made two, small
red paper hearts -- one at each place setting.  We each had a slokje of champagne
(Dutch for a sip), and wished each other a Happy Valentine's Day many times.

Wishing you a day filled with love and wonder.

Hi Jennifer Rose,

You must look great with long hair. I don't. But there's a cut, and then there's
too short. Still even too short becomes just right pretty quickly.
