Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. – Albert Einstein
Mary Beth and I have made an unusual pact this Valentine’s Day – no gifts. We are not even exchanging cards. Instead, we celebrated last week when we attended a concert in downtown Kansas City and then stayed in a historic, and romantic, hotel after the show.
To be honest, we’re not big Valentine’s Day fans anyway. After almost 25 years of marriage, our love is still strong and growing, so Mary Beth and I really don’t need the once-a-year prompt to keep it that way. We try to demonstrate our love everyday of the year.
Over the past several years I have written about our love and how we share it on a consistent basis. If you are a new reader you may have missed these romantic posts. If you have read these before, I hope you enjoy them again and find a new connection to each one.

No matter how you and your partner celebrate Valentine’s Day, my hope is your life will be blessed with love. Love is a gift that, when shared, becomes larger than the relationship. It serves as the foundation for our lives. When our days grow long and our bodies weary, where there is love to hold us up, then anything is possible.
Here’s to a lifetime full of love – and romance.
