Recently, I asked Jane Ganahl — the “Single Minded” San Francisco Chronicle columnist and author of Naked on the Page: the Misadventures of My Unmarred Midlife — how she has spent her Valentine’s Days as a single mom:
“When my daughter was little and I’d face a Valentine’s Day with no romantic prospects, I’d take us both out to a nice dinner and tell her we could be each other’s Valentine.
It was well worth it in the message it gave her – that women don’t need a suitor to be happy – and in the reminder it gave ME: that the little paper heart she gave me contained more love than the sum of all my suitors combined.”
So, how are YOU spending Valentine’s Day?
Will you be at the local martini bar for the 21-and-older crowd?… Or, are your plans more G-rated?
Jane Ganahl has just sent me two copies of Naked on the Page: the Misadventures of My Unmarred Midlife. Leave a comment about how you’re going to spend Valentine’s Day, and two of you will win.
