Happy Valentine's Day...

Happy Valentine's Day

Dear Readers,
Happy Valentine's Day! This photo was taken when I was in college. (Cameras were a little blurry then, I guess!) I received a bouquet of flowers from someone although the card was missing. I searched all over for the card and even called the florist. Hmmmm...they said it was a secret.
At the time I was dating a couple of young men, and I wasn't sure what to do. I called the first one just to chat, he said nothing of the flowers. wasn't him.
I called the second young man who immediately said, "Did you get the flowers?"
"Oh, indeed I did, and thank you for them."
So on this day we celebrate love and lovers. Hopefully you are with yours and are living happily ever after. (I am referring to this week's column, be sure you read it on this day as well!)
I started the day with Elizabeth Barrett Browning as my breakfast read, how can you not on Valentine's Day?
Enjoy this day with your sweetheart...simply count the ways.
Lou Ann
P.S. I don't look much like a hippie in this photo, I have a Baptist upbringing! However, by the second year I had the long hair, gogo boots and was singing "Where Have all the Flowers Gone" in coffee houses.
