My Valentine

You guys sure are an intuitive bunch. Or maybe you just caught on to my stealthy (?) ways.

You smartypants’s were right.


A month or two ago, there was a slight change to the cast list of my life, if you will.

(You like that theatre-themed tie in?)

The studly man you see above is indeed my boyfriend Gregory. I met him last year when we bonded over our love of the thea-tah. He urged me to get back on stage and audition for Gypsy, and from there, we became good friends.

But, ya know what?

I just can’t resist a guy who my dog loves more than she loves me (and that goes both ways).

Who sings. Real well (and in style).

Who gets along beautifully with my very best friends.

Who patiently attempts to teach me to play the guitar.

And what girl doesn’t swoon over some real patriotism?

Soon, I was a goner.

So I tricked him into dating me.


And I’d say I’m a pretty lucky girl.

So there you have it. I found myself a pretty sweet Valentine.


Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody. I’m sending you all big hugs and kisses. I hope your day is one that is especially filled with love.
