While the grown-ups tended to details and paperwork, Big Brother Jake could not resist the pull of his new little girlfriend. Being a true gentleman, he brought her something to drink and whispered sweet nothings into her ear. It was the beginning of a tumultous love affair.
After what seemed like hours, it was our turn to be introduced. We couldn't wait to finally meet this little lady. What would she look like? Would she like us? Had we brought the right stuff? What would we say? Palms were sweaty, stomachs were queasy and hearts were pounding wildly. The air was thick with excitement and anticipation.
Who needs a box of chocolates? This little bundle was the sweetest treat ever!
We shouldn't have worried. It was true love at first sight.
Our little Valentine came all bundled up in soft yellows and blues. Underneath, she was pink and white and red all over. And, although she never shared the name of her perfume, her scent was intoxicating. No small talk was necessary. There was instant chemistry, and--like any hot date--we couldn't wait to get her back to our hotel room.
We were surprised by her passion and fire. She kept us up all night long.
Happy Birthday to our V-day sweetheart...Love you, Em!
