Hope you are well.
For Valentine’s Day this year, please bring me my own version of Jack Pearson (you know, the perfect man from “This Is Us“).
He is a great husband, father and friend.

But more importantly, Jack is a music connoisseur. Yes, I am referring to the Bruce Springsteen tickets he bought for him & his family to see the Boss himself (not to mention playing a song of his for teenage Kate who was breaking her father’s heart by listening to noise).
How impossibly sad that Jack died before the Springsteen show. I only hope that he saw him previously, with Rebecca, during the “Born To Run” or “Darkness” tours. I hope so. Missing out on his kid’s futures is bad enough, but missing Springsteen live…..that is too sad for words!!! 😦
But Cupid, I digress.

I promise to shower my Jack with all the love, hugs, kisses & support in the world & get us great seats to every Springsteen show within a 300 mile radius so we can take a road trip to the show while we listen to E Street Radio. I will even pack us a great picnic lunch for the drive and bake delicious chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
Thank you, Cupid. Xoxoxo.
PS: Whenever Valentine’s Day rolls around, you know I think a lot about you. I always picture you as the sweet little cherub icon. Adorable!!!
That is, however, until I saw Liam Neeson portraying you on “The Late Show” last week. He was his beautiful, hilarious self so I hope you do not mind if I see you that way from now on. 🙂

And Cupid, in celebration of the Feast of Saint Valentine, I will make this week’s song a love song. But not a traditional one as I am not a traditional girl. This one tells the story of two people in the throws of some difficulties, but despite where they are in the moment, there is no doubt where their hearts lie:
“I got you, in my veins & my blood,
I got you, straight to my heart like a flood,
Like there ain’t no other love,
Hearts aren’t always red, they’re black & blue.
I got you”.
The song is called “I Got You” by The White Buffalo featuring Audra Mae, who is the great-great-niece of Judy Garland. And his voice makes me saaaa-woooooooooon!!!
Thanks again, Cupid. And please remember I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
Until next time, happy digging!!!
