“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu

On Valentine’s Day … more than 58 million pounds of chocolate will change hands across the nation.

In the Middle Ages, when jousting knights competed for honor and love, their sweethearts offered them bright red ribbons – a symbol of good luck! And the red ribbons that adorn each heart-shaped box trace their roots back to an Old World tradition.

Wishing you all the luck and success you
deserve … in business, in love, and in life!

P.S. Valentine’s Day, named after St. Valentine is popular in many countries besides the USA.  For a more in-depth explanation of the history of Valentine’s Day and to read about the various real St. Valentines please click on the following link:


About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
