Romancing Myself

Self-love is not so vile a sin as self-neglecting.

William Shakespeare

What’s so great about being a married woman when Valentine’s Day rolls around?

1.  Nosy buggers don’t bother us with questions like “So who’s your date?”

2.  We don’t have to wait for the phone to ring.  We can pick it up and make our own reservations–and he better show up.

3.  If we are among the lucky ones whose hubby brings a thoughtful present, we smile gratefully knowing we’ll know where to find the receipt for a return/exchange.

We learn (aka surrender) that loving ourselves is our very own business–not a man’s.

Do leave a comment to add to this list…  And have the sweetest Valentine!
