Happy Valentine's Day

I've been absent from my blog recently and I apologize. Other obligations have kept my attention focused on other things...Few as pleasant as writing.

But as everything goes, today I will get a little time in since I'm in the deepest projected region of the eastern seaboard's big snow.

If we get more than 21 inches in less than 24 hours, we break the record that's stood since before my birth. I'm all about being competitive, but seeing how deceptively flat our rolling hills are starting to look, I'm thinking that an excess of snow is not what I really wanted on Valentine's Day. I mean, the hubby stayed home (snow day) so that's great, but we're having some snow-related issues around the house already. I'm glad I'm not getting the "Lake Effect Snow," but there's plenty in spite of it.

Anyhow, here's an interesting article in the spirit of the day--
Valentines, A History.

Have a great day--spread the love!

You are the Huntress... No matter how many times you try and prove yourself to be good, you always seem to be stuck in the same rut, with the reputation as a "bad girl". Guys love to hang around you because you're easy to talk too.
