A Simple Valentine's Day

My Valentine's Day went to be simple as expected. I left home after lunch to fulfill my promise of returning to Starbucks in the mall near my former office. A week ago, I was invited by the friendly barista to watch a live band perform in their branch. So, date or no date, off I went. I also spent time meeting one of my former office mates, Beth for a chat over ice cream and a mere solemn period in one of my happy places, Fully Booked. I was surprised because I heard their branch play a rather nice version of James Taylor's Everyday. It was then followed by The Script's The Man Who Can't Be Moved which reminded me of one of my friends (Hi, Jeff Z!) as it's one of his favorite group and the song was actually one of my anthems. Funny but I did not leave the store until the song was done playing it (:-p)

I got myself a new journal to take the place of my present one which has a few blank pages left, immersed over a good book, a tall Java Chip Frappuccino and a slice of Oreo cheesecake.

Before I left today, I was able to log in and check for recent developments and as instinct hit me, I found one new comment that needed my approval. And maybe, Valentine's day in a way has some magic in it for I arrived home to another surprise.

Want to know what it is? Please check out the next post :-).
