people have a lot of different opinions on valentines day. and i suspect some have no opinion at all!
i love valentines day. and yes, i have experienced it while being single. and no, my husband is not the kind of man to blow my socks of with v-day surprises (though he's surprisingly good with birthday scavenger hunts...).
but that doesn't mean i don't love valentines day. i'm sure i've waxed poetic on this topic before, but maybe it's worth repeating. there are three hundred and sixty-five days in a year - why not dedicate one of them to expressing our love for one another? a day that's sole purpose is for us to remind our family, friends and lovers just how much they mean to us. i think that is amazing.
and i guess it bothers people that the day has been "watered down" into cards and flowers and chocolate. but i guess the way i see those things is as solutions for those that aren't necessarily creative enough to think of something else.
but me? yup, i love it. how about you?
p.s. if your still looking for sweet gift ideas - here's one of mine!
