Cupid looks lovingly at his Valentine. A blush pink silk bow in his chubby little hands. But what is the bow for? Perhaps he has just unwrapped a gift, or is going to wrap a present for the one he loves. Or maybe a little treasure hunt is in order..and the ribbon serves as a blindfold? I know a good matchmaker, if you need one.
A young boy serenades his young love, swinging away on her seat, braids tossing ’round in the breeze. Young and innocent, they celebrate each other. I wonder how sweet the song can be…on a bagpipe?
Whose love will you be celebrating today? Where will you aim cupids arrow? What romantic notions are you planning for your Valentine? A treasure hunt, a special dinner, maybe your concocting some love potion? Do kiss and tell.
However and whomever you celebrate… Happy Valentine’s Day!
