I wore a dress Thursday, looking forward to an evening of deep stares, smiles, and a shared dessert that would take me back to the moment I realized he was my beloved.
Back then, we ate dinners at the dining room table to a soundtrack of jazz music and the occasional Barry White hit, and we were willing to stay up all night just to be with each other.
But with each passing year, it seems the hours produce a more exhausted version of ourselves. Our time is filled with work, laundry and everything else on our to-do lists.
So this year when our Valentine’s Day plans fell apart, I didn’t care.
I realized that I didn’t need a special dinner, flowers, cards, or candy.
I realized that I have my beloved every day of the year.
And he has me.
And we can show each other what we mean to each other any day of the year.
