Guys, I feel for you. I do. You’re under a lot of pressure to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your partner. After all, her expectations have been building since those hearts and cupids went up all over town on the day after Christmas. For the last few weeks, she’s probably been fishing through your pockets for a telling receipt, scanning your credit card bill looking for clues, and poking around in your sock drawer for a glimpse of what you might have hidden in there.

Valentine’s Day

A passionate love from Sea Glass Hearts author Josie Iselin

It used to be that a Valentine would profess his (or her) love but never his identity. When I was a kid, my dad would perpetuate this tradition of mystery by leaving cards on the breakfast table on February 14th, that, using squiggly handwriting, were clearly from some unknown admirer. I loved this about my dad. Our current Valentine’s Day, however, is perhaps less about the unknown and more about a depth of love. It is a day to be passionate about your spouse, your lover, your mother or father, your kids or, as is my case on this Valentine’s Day, the beach. It is joyous and powerful to profess your love out loud.
