No Time Like the Present
By Sara Gae Waters Photos by Carli Wentworth WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? Everything! At least right here and right now. I’m sure there are some naysayers out there who would really LOVE it if February would just skip over the entire love thing. But Valentine’s Day has a stronghold on the month; just breathe and accept it. My sweet dad likes to say that every day is his birthday. It’s his yearly mantra when we try to make a big darn deal about another year come and gone. I love his optimism and gratefulness. Shouldn’t we treat every day as special? The truth is, these little gems are good for any time of year: great for the Valentine, the spouse, the child, the sweetheart or the secret crush. Just put down the mantle of pressure for February 14. If you hit that day with everything wrapped up and a nice bow on top … kudos. If not, you have time. Lots of it. One thing to remember, though: there’s no time like the present to tell that special someone you love them … and in that spirit, every day should be Valentine’s Day.
