  1. Sex and the single girl: it can be challenging! And Valentine’s Day? Well … hoards of men show up at my door with chocolate and flowers begging for my attention – but I could be exaggerating.

    Will have fun checking out your links!

    • Ha. What a problem! 😉

      I love what Marla shared on the air about her single days. She used to take herself out for fine dining and wine on V-Day. Thinking we should all do that occasionally!

  2. Thanks for the shout and congrats on your radio show. Soon you’ll have your own TV show following The Doctors!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. Thank you so much. I love the internet, and the amazing people I’ve met.

  4. Jacqueline and I usually watch SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE on Valentine’s Day. But in truth, we celebrate it every day of the year.

  5. I had an awesome time on your show August. Thanks for having me, I know it is going to be a big hit! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. xxoo

    Perhaps our souls are like one of those split hearts you see on necklaces, you can get them with both halves matching. They have the jagged edge, a lot like you’ll find on a key. Like keys, the permutations of those little grooves are in the thousands. Some keys will go into a lock and not turn the tumblers, others wont even fit. Then there are those that slip in and almost turn them all. To find the one that opens the door, well, that can take an eternity.

    Wow, August. It took me quote some time to read it all.
    As you know I think I’ve found my soulmate. I personally think the bond between us is so strong sometimes that we don’t even need to say something, just look at each other and we know what the other one thinks.
    There are plenty of “misunderstandings” that make us laugh though – but basically the others’ needs and happiness is important to each one of us. That’s what soulmates are for me.
    As you know, my soulmate isn’t living around the corner (yet) – that’s why I’ll be spending Valentines’ Day all by myself… and his picture in my heart.
    Happy Valentines’ Day to you!

    • Sounds like you’ve definitely found that special someone, Raani! I’m so grateful for that. 🙂 I hope you both feel profound closeness tomorrow, and all days. I know that distance can be both tough and strengthening. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  8. Great show, August. Marla’s brilliant. Valentine’s day isn’t one of my fave holidays, but it’s probably because I’ve been single as of late. Since my grandfather has passed, my Nana and I usually treat ourselves to some dark chocolate and red wine. She lost her soul mate a few years ago, and they were married for a little over fifty years. Haven’t met my soul mate just yet, but I wholeheartedly believe in that beautiful notion. Here’s to finding that special someone and having a wonderful Valentine’s day. XOXOX 🙂

    • So glad you enjoyed it! She really does know her stuff.

      I hope you had a beautiful V-Day with your nana. Your tradition sounds precious! Here’s to you following in her soulmate-love footsteps. 🙂

  9. Can’t wait for a little free time to listen to this episode and check out the links you shared. Thanks!
