The Month of Love

Cheers to sweethearts Tim and Patti Kaminski.

Welcome to the absolute best month of the year – the month that features my three favorite C’s:  chocolate, cabernet and champagne! Well, I really love diamonds in February, too, and that word doesn’t begin with a C.  Hopefully Mr. Kaminski doesn’t get that confused with another C word – crystals – because then he might not love the month of love very much!

Since it is the month of love, this issue is all about amor starting with our cover story. We reached out and asked some Fort Bend friends how they met their sweethearts and shared their true love tales.

Though I love chocolate and wine – especially this month – I’ve never been one to enjoy them together.  I know, I’m not the norm on that one, or so I thought until I read Jeff’s column this month.  In Will You Be My Wine for Valentine’s, the Drunken Cyclist shares that wine and chocolate aren’t really his favorite combination either, but he spotlights some amazing wine and bubbles perfect for a Valentine’s Day celebration.  I’ve circled three to help Mr. Kaminski out.  I like to help.

The Cast Theatrical Company, sporting a new logo for 2023, has a new show just in time for Valentine’s Day.  Waiting for MacArthur is an emotionally touching WWII war story told from the perspective of an Army nurse.  Mr. Kaminski and I have been to several Cast Theatrical performances at the Historic Downtown Rosenberg theatre and thoroughly enjoy this community company. They never disappoint.  It’s perfect for a romantic night out on the town.

If you’re looking to stay in and make an amazing meal for your sweetheart, we’ve got you covered there as well with some great recipes to show your love on page 14.

No matter what you do this Valentine’s Day, enjoy your time with your special someone.  As more Februarys pass, I appreciate more and more my favorite quote about love by William Shakespeare.  “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Stay focused – on love!
