Valentine’s Day. My favorite holiday of the year. More than Thanksgiving, more than Halloween, more than Christmas. Why? Because I’m a sucka for love. The romance, the flowers, the well thought out card (ha!). The one day of the year that some might say is completely overrated, yet, I happily soak it all up. And even more happily, give.
Men, if you’re out of ideas on a beautiful gift for someone special in your life, I suggest a love letter. Simple, sweet, romantic and forever treasured.
Here is a short excerpt of a love letter written by Ludwig van Beethoven addressed to his ‘Immortal Beloved’, whose identity has not been established.
You - my Life - my All - farewell.
Oh, go on loving me – never doubt the faithfullest heart.
Of your beloved
Damn. He had me at hello.
Till the next episode…
