Just because....

The Valentine’s Day Conundrum…

Chocolate filled hearts, cute cards, stuffed animals and roses fill every store at this moment.  At every stoplight, there is a person on the corner selling items to melt someone into a loving embrace…. I can’t wait for this “holiday” to be over… Oddly enough I love a good sappy movie. I adore reading a novel with a happily-after-ending, but…. I just can’t take all this bat-your-eyes, ‘Be Mine’ Valentines Day stuff…

Sheldon has it right, LOL!

Honestly I find most of it to be fake… Why not treat someone  you adore like they hang the moon the other 365 days of the year? I have seen so many people I know treated badly in relationships, but on that one day a year, their partner whips in with roses and wine and its all good? I’d rather be treated with love and respect all year than one day of empty promises…

So I will pass on the candy hearts and champagne promises and instead celebrate Valentines Day in a way that truly brings me joy… having a picnic lunch at the zoo with my little boy and relaxing with a sappy, feel-good movie at the end of the day. To each their own… and this is my bliss…. but to my readers who do believe in the magic of cupid, I wish you a very happy Valentines Day. Drop me a line and let me know how you find your bliss on V-Day… oh… and save the Chocolate covered strawberries for me- -my one V-day vice 🙂
