Five years ago today, I had a grim Valentine’s Day. There was a huge blizzard in New York, and I was trudging home from work in the dark, feeling very lonely. As I dodged slush puddles, I wondered if I’d ever meet my soulmate. Didn’t seem likely. Little did I know that two weeks later (just two weeks!) I would find the love of my life. As I’ve said before, it goes to show that you never know what’s around the corner.

What are you doing today? Remember how lovely and wonderful you always are. xoxo
