It is celebrated annually on February 14th. Valentine’s Day has been recognized as a notable traditional, religious and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the 14th century, when the ritual of genteel courting flourished. In 18th-century England, it developed into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by giving flowers, sweet treats, and greeting cards. (source)
Whether it is rooted in paganism (i.e. Lupercalia) or Christian martyrdom (i.e. Saint Valentine), today Valentine’s Day is a day to lavish attention on loved ones. This year people have lavished Valentine’s Day attention on their loved ones contributing $19.6 billion to the economy. (source)
My LB contributes to the economy as well.
This year’s Valentine’s Day
was unlike any other.
I left work midday and made my way to the hospital (labor and delivery), to await the arrival of a sweet new GlamBaby.
On February 14, 2018
came into the world.Being that she was about three weeks earlier than expected, I was surprised to learn that she weighed 6 pounds and 18 3/4 inches long. She is very alert and is obviously taking in her world.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my blog.
