I've been MIA around here since the holidays and now we're getting close to another one.  Life is going at warp speed and I suddenly have a very active 7-month-old baby, so my hands have been quite full and my computer is collecting dust (figuratively speaking of course, I'm actually a total neat freak).  Anyhoo, I'm glad to be back and Valentine's Day is just around the corner!  Regardless of whether you love or hate this mushy holiday, I believe in celebrating love and having a day devoted to loving one another, especially during uncertain times.  So go ahead and spread your love, whether it's with your family, your friends, your significant other, or the mail man.  Because all you need is love...
