Happy Valentines Day

I love how this holiday is treated here. I have been getting greetings – Feliz Dia de la Amistad  (happy day of friendship). It was explained that Valentines Day is for everyone, your friends, your family, anyone you love even including your dog and your goldfish. How nice is that?!  How inclusive. Many single people feel depressed on this day, but you can’t do that here when you get greetings from everyone who cares about you.

So, to all of you, all of my friends out there – Feliz Día de la Amistad!

I got a Happy Valentines Day from my husband though, and a Happy Anniversary. 21 years! Our lives have taken twists and turns we never would have imagined when we first met back in 1990. It’s going wonderfully and we have decided to do one more year and see where this one takes us 😀

    Hola Kris,
    We go day by day. First thing over coffee every day we decide to see how the day goes. If we wake up together the next day, we go again. Been doing it that way for 46 years. So far, so good.

  5. Hi Kris — What a lovely “holiday!” Our little Athena (4 or 5 years old) came to Community lunch yesterday with about 25 tiny handmade Valentines and gave them out shyly to everyone at lunch — even to a visitor. We felt the same spirit as you described.
    Congratulations on your 21 years together. Tomas and I celebrated 12 on January 21st. Like you, we commit moment by moment and those moments have taken us many places in our time together. may your next year bring you even more beautiful and growth-full moments to bond your lives together in love. Many blessings, Alia
