I am a creative, expressive person. I always have been. I've pursued multiple dreams, careers, and artistic endeavors, trying to strike a balance between doing the work that feeds my soul and the work that pays the bills. Sometimes these two overlap, but often they don't. As I get older, I find myself wondering, what has my creativity cost me? Where would I be now if I hadn't pursued such a creative life?

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I have nothing planned. No reservations. No special gifts. No sexy underwear (none that fit, anyway). I have two young toddlers, a husband who works six days/nights a week, and not enough time to even clean the toilet. How do parents with young children find time to celebrate this holiday?
