Valentine's Day is this week. ARE YOU READY? Someone said this to me today when I was picking up my kids from tennis. I smiled and nodded, and said "what about you?!" In reality, I should have said "Dafuq? Ready for WHAT?" Valentine's Day, traditionally, is a huge disappointment for me. Most years, my husband… Continue reading Dinner For One
