Heart's Desire

Today, as we celebrate Valentine's Day, tune in to that inner voice whispering your heart's desire.

If you find a yearning to change your vocation, find one that defines you and gives you a sense of purpose. If it involves your avocation, the sky is the limit. Be a rocket man/woman!

So who do we thank for this holiday and why?

Actually, St. Valentine was a priest during the third century in Rome. He defied a decree of Emperor Claudius II, aka Claudius the Cruel, who had canceled all marriages and engagements because he believed single men made better soldiers. Valentine began to secretly marry couples and when Emperor Claudius was informed of these ceremonies Valentine was sent to prison where he remained until his death on February 14 in the year 270.

My heart's desire has been to spread my passion for wine, it's journey from vine to glass and how it elevates the food and company with which it is served.

Tonight, try of few of these romantic suggestions:

Watch the sunset together.

Eat dinner by candlelight.

Propose a toast to each other (open a "special" bottle /use the "good" glasses)


Say "I Love You" in a foreign language.

Je t'aime - French

Ich liebe Dich- German

ti amo- Italian
