Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day has always been special to me. Given I'm a romance writer, it's kind of like a national holiday. We never do anything huge or make grand gestures, but it's those little things—a special card or an extra kiss or favorite chocolate candy—that make the day so special. Not just for hubby and me, but our entire family. But I realize those celebrating love can and should happen every day. Not just the fourteenth of February.

A good thing because our Valentine's day is going to be a little different this year. And it's totally my fault for not taking better care of myself.

Being stuck in bed doesn't make for a great Valentine's Day. Let me fix that...being stuck in bed sick.

This weekend I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and pleurisy. Neither are much fun. But given I had an EKG to rule out heart problems and a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia, a mass in my lungs and a few other not so good things, I'd say I ended up with the better diagnosis.

I actually got my Valentine's Day present early. The relief I saw on hubby's face when I walked into the lobby after a three hour examination told me more about his love than anything he could have bought me. The kidlets, too.

I'm making a stop on my virtual book tour today at Hearticles. I'm blogging about category romance. I'll also be giving away a book in honor of Valentine's Day so stop by and say hi! I'll be checking in throughout the day.

And finally, check out how Adam Young of Owl City responds to Taylor Swift's song Enchanted about her crush on him. Talk about a hero move. The "shy boy" did well! Must admit, I'm curious what will happen next!

Happy Valentine's Day!
