Have to admit this has always been a special day for me and not because of romance – though I do enjoy that. Valentine’s Day was Daddy’s birthday. Since he was without a doubt the best daddy in the world that made the day especially special.
I remember thinking when I was little that it just wasn’t fair that he had to give away presents on his birthday. It was an all-female house so the poor guy was really trapped. I do remember the incredible cards he would buy Momma every year. I guess you would call them pop-ups but they were the most romantic looking cards you’ve ever seen – lacy and delicate. I never did know where he got them, they weren’t in any Hallmark store I ever saw. Sis and I never got that kind but I loved looking at Momma’s. We always got a red heart-shaped box of chocolates. Momma got the chocolate covered Brazil nuts.
Since this is a special day for me, I want to give away gifts too – My new short story, Dance Partner was released February 3 and I want to give away a few copies. Just leave me a comment – tell me what makes the day special for you and be sure to visit all the other Rebel Ink writers.
