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.

  1. One Dozen Out-of-the-Box Ideas to Inspire Romance
  2. 23 Heartfelt Reasons I Will Always Be Faithful to My Wife (Written for Mary Beth on our 23rd wedding anniversary.)
  3. 23 Heartfelt Reasons I Will Always Love My Husband (Her response.)
  4. How to Love Consciously
  5. Remembering First Love and the Lessons Learned
  6. The New Color of Romance
  7. Seven Amazing Ways to Become Love Today
  8. 25 Heartfelt Reasons I Will Always Love My Wife (The third installment in this series. This post was written to acknowledge the day we met – 25 years earlier. We celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary later in June).
  9. Conscious Connection Face-to-Face and Heart to Heart
  10. 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.

    Hi Alex,

    Wow, what a joy to learn of the solid marriage that you and your wife have created. I love it! My husband and I have been married over 15 years and we, too, don’t get into the commercial Valentine’s Day hype…simply because every day is a gift to be grateful for. We’ve also made that ‘unusual pact’ with holidays which still raises eyebrows, but it works for us–and obviously for you guys as well! I love your boldness in putting it all out there. Thank you for sharing your sweet and lovely posts.

    Just for fun, I’d love to share with you a post that I wrote as a tribute to my husband…which has a similar tone to so much of what you and your wife have written above: http://www.followingyourjoy.com/loving-relationships/fifteen-years-of-joy. :)

    Keep on spreading the joy and leading the way! So delighted to have connected with you.

    Best wishes to you two for a GREAT weekend!

    Warmly,
    Michelle
