February 14, 2018: A Day of Celebration & Mindfulness

February 14 is now a special day in my life, in different ways. It’s Andy’s sister’s birthday, as well as the ‘day of love’ for many couples. Since Andy and I officially began our relationship the following day a few years ago, we celebrate our moment later on. Since a birthday is also honored today, it makes planning our outing easier.

Today also marks Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for Roman Catholics. I haven’t thought much about what to abstain from for a few weeks, but I’ll think of something. As daunting as it may feel to give up a favored thing for 40 days, it does pass quickly.
