    • Your very welcome! Thought it to be appropriate since so many of us are single!

      Thrilled you liked the photo! So many spectacular artists out there!

      Thank you, love! 😀

  1. The photo IS perfect… I was so busy I barely noticed it was Valentines day. If it’s any help… I was thinking of you yesterday… We use to commiserated Valentines day when I was single…. I don’t know if you remember it. Of course there are some who are married who still feel “alone” or don’t really like Valentine’s day becuz so many guys feel “compelled” to have to get something and usually end up at the grocery store on the way home… LOL Hope you have a good weekend…
