Just Another Day+Liz Lui
and I actually don't celebrate Valentine's day. This isn't because we have been together for years; we have never celebrated this holiday. We are just one of those couples that believes in celebrating our love every day of the year, not some arbitrary day in February. In most cases, we purposefully avoid any displays of affection simply because doing so is very inconvenient on this day since there are crowds at restaurants and candy stores and the prices of things are usually jacked up.
But given all the love going around on G+ by the likes of +Michael O'Reilly
, +Sharon Strandskov
, and others I decided to at least tell my wife very publicly what she has meant to me over the last year. I've done it before (http://bit.ly/wo5ZNd
) but let me do it again. I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for Liz. She lets me accomplish things I never thought I could. This startup journey has not been easy and there are times I doubt if I did the right thing. But just one smile from her is enough to convince me that I did. I didn't know what it meant to have a complete life until she came along. I try to tell her that every day and this day should be no different even if everyone else is doing it with their loved ones. So thanks Liz. I love you.
Even if you are like me and don't celebrate this holiday, that doesn't mean you should let what the rest of the world dictate what you should be doing anyway, telling the people who matter the most to you how much they matter every day
