I told theMan that I didn’t want to make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day. While I enjoy giving and receive tokens of appreciation, I don’t feel that what this “hallmark holiday” advocates is what love is all about. Rather than flowers and chocolates, I’d rather spend time with the one I love, receive a compliment or two, or sing along with him as he plays his guitar and harmonica.
Today is The-Man-of-my-dream’s birthday! Wanting to make the day extra special, I decided to make a slide show of the some-odd (even actually) years of his life. I queried a few people for photos from his younger years, pulled some of my favorites from the past few years, selected a song from Tom Petty, his favorite musician, and Wal-La!
The whole exercise was an exercise in falling in love again and again. There were so many photos of many wonderful times we’ve spent together.
When I got so absorbed in my work that I ignored the “low battery” alert and lost many of the critical edits, I returned to the project with a renewed vision…and started over.
