One of the Valentine’s day’s I remember the most happened 28 years ago. I broke up with a serious boyfriend, who I really didn’t love, but couldn’t let go of (one of those perfect-on-paper, but-not-in-real-life). It was Valentine’s day and when you’re single, and young, you feel like the whole world is paired off. Anyway, it was around four o’ clock and I was sitting in the hallway, gabbing with people at my first job as a copywriter, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. All of a sudden I get a call that I had a delivery. My high school friend Jerry, sent me a dozen roses! I was really surprised, incredibly happy and I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.

This morning I got this in the mail from my incredibly thoughtful friend Stephanie. She made it for me. Because she is the freaking best. That’s why. Thanks, Steph. You’re right, love is the key.
