Today was my Dads birthday. He would have been 81. Today is my ex husbands birthday, the good ex! Valentines growing up weren’t always about me,
Even after I was divorced, Valentines wasn’t so special. It’s probably because birthday is the next day. Since I turned 50 I have spent my Birthdays far away, not because I am embarrassed by my age but because I want to truly celebrate. After a few years my friend noticed that I had been to a couple of continents during my birthday and wouldn’t it be cool to go to all seven continents in my 50’s. I have one left, Antarctica in 2022! Last year on Valentines Day I was in Melbourne at an Irish Pub. It was very busy and very loud. I saw a handsome Australian and ended up talking and dancing with him til late in the evening. We are still close today. Maybe after Covid we will meet again.
