Last year, I had planned a Valentine’s Day lunch at Tavern on the Green and tickets to see Hairspray for my boyfriend of two years. However, a month before Valentine’s Day, he broke up with me. So instead of finding a new date, I took my Mom and it was the most love-filled day I have ever experienced. It was just so refreshing to not have to deal with everything that a relationship brings and you never have to worry about losing your mother’s love, she is always there.
The lunch was delicious and the show was incredible, and my dad even set it up so that a limo would be there to pick us up. Days that like made me feel OK about not being in a relationship. That there is more to life than just that sorta love. There is love everywhere.
