“You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy."
Happy Valentine’s Day, all! I can remember hating this day when I was a school girl…all the “pretty” girls got flowers, candy, attention and I usually walked away with nothing but depression and self- loathing. Oh, if I could just capture those times again and walk through them with the understanding I have today. Love comes from a variety of places and I no longer cry because it might not come packaged as the rest of the world thinks it should.
Maybe you won’t sit on a romantic balcony tonight…or receive a bouquet of flowers…but you can look in the mirror and know that you are a blessing to other people. Experience joy this day and go bless someone else. Sometimes, all it takes is a smile!

About my Valentine’s outfit, the lesson here is NEVER SAY NEVER! I actually told someone that I did not think I would ever wear colored denim….well, here it is!! And my significant other liked it….after he shot the pictures, he told me to wear this to our Valentine’s dinner! I guess it’s a keeper!
