My Valentine

When my husband asked me what I wanted for Valentines Day I was at a bit of a loss, since we don’t generally go crazy on the purely commercial holidays. But I asked him to let me think about it for awhile. One of the historical representations of St. Valentine is of a priest who married couples on the sly under the rule of the Roman emperor Claudius II, and he was killed for doing so. Whether there is any truth to the story or not, I have to admire someone who takes a life-threatening risk for people who love each other and want to be together.  The hearts and flowers and general Valentine cheesiness are fun, and I certainly enjoy them (as you will see below!) But that’s the easy part. The hard thing is loving and and living day in and day out with our loved ones as imperfect people in an imperfect world. I finally pulled my husband aside and told him that he really makes every day Valentines Day for me, because thanks to him, every morning I wake up to a happy life. Thank you, my darling husband, my partner in SL and RL—I wouldn’t trade one day of my ten years with you for all the hearts and flowers in the world.

I loved the wall decal on the Thistle cottage–it spoke to my cheesy heart, since we have a similar lovey-dovey expression on our wall at home:

Happy Valentines Day, everybody!

    Gracias por los comentarios de amor tan bonitos. Yo también estoy muy feliz por tenerte en mi vida y espero que podamos disfrutar el uno del otro para siempre. Me encantaron las fotos de Second Life y de nuestro nido. Te amo.
