Just wanted to share a little Valentine’s Day love with y’all. I miss the days of elementary school, you know where you’d sit in class creating and decorating baskets to hold all of your potential goodies. The irreplaceable rush from shopping for special valentines and gifts for that first crush. Ohhhh, and having my mom help hot glue charms and knick knacks to make the ultimate card ever for the first boy who stole my heart in first grade. Oh, Peter how I loved you so… until my basket was overflowing with other potential suitors. Perhaps that was the boycrazy turning point (Mama dukes still thinks it was in pre-school with the playdough saga).

I wish I could say I’m a huge fan of V-Day, but it’s more like relationship D-Day this year. So while all you lovebirds are stuffing your faces with fancy dinners and chocolates & champagne; I’ll be busting my ass on the Santa Monica Stairs and biking from Santa Monica to Venice and back. Gotta get the mind & body right…

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours <3
