Happy Valentine's Day

I admit it, I add Valentine's day in the same sack as Halloween and tag it with "Holidays I don't find being holidays". I don't tend to celebrate these days, however they are American inventions, so you might be able to use the "this is created to sell stuff in the US" argument, but now that you are here, they kind of make more sense. I especially look forward to celebrating Halloween with Leah dressed as something, not sure what still (A bee, President Obama, Superwoman, Michael Moore...?).

Valentine's Day is a good day to talk about my wife Silvia. I am sure most people have a moment they can pinpoint has being a life changing moment for them. Mine was when I met Silvia. She is just the most wonderful woman, and I love her because she makes it so easy to be me, something I had forgot how to do. She has been amazing during this time of so much change, so supportive and brave to go on this adventure with me, and I cannot believe how lucky I am to have her by my side. I want to thank you Silvia for this time together, for being an amazing mother, for making me a better person, and for making my life an incredible ride.

Happy Valentine's day lillan!
