Happy Valentine's Day! It's not just for lovers, it's for anybody that has passion and a sense of the romantic. I'm such a sucker for that kind of stuff, too (flowers, jewelry, romantic dinners) but these days Bill and I settle for things that don't interfere with our budget.

Here's one of my favourite songs of all time:

Last night while I was putting away groceries, Bill brings up iTunes and starts playing At Last. Four years ago, I would have been listening to it all alone while Bill was working over in Qatar and longing for him with an ache that would never go away. This year, he took me in his arms and danced me all over the kitchen.

It definitely makes up for the fact that tonight, he got called back to Fox Creek and won't be home again until tomorrow night. I think I'll have some shiraz and watch SNL. Who's hosting?


  1. I was about to type "why are you not making sweet love" but then finished reading the rest of your post. Hope your Vday was special one day early, and the tomorrow is even better.

  2. What a beautiful picture Kate. How romantic dancing around the kitchen, I love that song too.

  3. Alec Baldwin's hosting! ;D I'm so excited!

    Happy Valentine's Day!!!

  4. Sounds very romantic.

  5. I missed SNL last night. I'm glad you had a good day. We made cookies together. It was a lot of fun :)

  6. Kitchen dancing is always the best :)

    But some of us think passion and romance is an all year thing ^.^

  7. I love that song, it was our first dance song at our wedding. :D
