A Valentine's Day Message

Today, I send a Valentine to all the special girls who have touched my heart over the years.

Ramona Quimby
Any woman who can’t resist the urge to squeeze a tube of toothpaste into the sink has my heart forever.

Leslie Burke
A girl willing to take on the boys in a foot race makes my heart skip a beat every time.  My heart has never recovered from that fateful swing over the creek.

Harriet the Spy
A beautiful girl and a spy… my poor heart can’t take much more.

Nancy Drew
If it wasn’t for those darn Hardy Boys we could have had something special.

Pippi Longstocking
Had we been married, I would have taken your name… Jeff Longstocking has a nice ring.

Amelia Bedelia
A woman who bakes wonderful pies will always have a special place in my heart. 

Gilly Hopkins
My heart took a pounding from this tough chick.

No nerd has ever been more attractive.

I stand corrected… I take back the previous line.

Junie B. Jones
Who knew poor grammar could move my heart.

A girl who climbs trees and fights for justice… I never had a chance.

But none of these shine as bright as my one and only Valentine.

Happy Valentine’s Day Sweety!
