Happy Valentine's Day


Yeah.....so not really a fan of Valentine's Day.  I do give cards and a small gift to the kids, but as for the grand gesture, date-to-end-all-dates, fabulous jewelry, and other crazy hoopla.....not so much.  That doesn't mean I've never done any of that or wanted it, but I think I've grown past the insanity of the commercialized holiday.  If you really want to give me roses, do it some day it's unexpected and doesn't require taking out a loan.  A nice dinner is welcome any time, but I'd rather go when the place isn't packed to the gills and the hostess isn't timing how long it's taking you to chew because someone else is waiting for the table.

I guess my two big peeves about today are the thought that saying "I love you" because it's the expected thing to do doesn't mean much and that going broke living up to expectations is stupid.

On a smaller peeve level, I just think the whole day cheapens love and what God intended it to be.

Still, if you get all excited about it, good for you and Happy Valentine's Day!

If you don't have a sweetheart to celebrate with, here are some pick-up lines to help you meet that special someone.

You are so right about Valentine's Day. I am right there with you about going out on this day. It is nice when you show someone that you love them by the little things you do all through the year.

I agree, I appreciate flowers so much more when they are not expected.
