Single-tines, Valentines Call it what you want Ohhh the awesomeness that we call valentines day... I have such a love/hate relationship with this day. I do believe it is this awful idea for relationships to be forced to shower love on this day only. I believe if you are in a loving relationship you should have everyday be a day where you love one another. Why need one day?! I mean I do loveeee this holiday when I have someone to share it with, why wouldn't any normal person love this holiday if they actually get a chance to be able to live it up with someone they love. Although when I was in a relationship, I never saw Valentines day as this HUGE production. I do believe I have a hard time with being told what to do. I do love the idea of doing things when it is least expected. Therefore doing something on Valentines day seems sooo predictable, [plus you can never find a restaurant to go to]. I wish people would use valentines day to say they love someone that doesn't get to see it or feel it every day..OHHH... Yesterday I went to the grocery store... The smell of roses were OVERWHELMING! I must be broken because as a girl, I would rather have Lily's or Stargazers over the typical roses... But hey... any flowers are nice! I think what is going to be hard this valentines is that... The older I get the more interesting it is to have romantic gestures on days that are deemed "romantic necessary". But I am not into the awkward "I feel pressured" because it is Valentines day to be romantic, I want the genuine I am feeling romantic, lovey dovey to you because I care about you... Not because there is a holiday dedicated to it.
OHHH I also have to pay tribute to my single ladies on Valentines day: I must admit my FAVORITE Valentines day was with two of my girlfriends at like 10pm we went to the bar and ordered lemon drops. The crowd and group was by far the BEST fun I have had in all of my Valentines!!! Single ladies, go out with your friends in the best way possible! It will be SO worth it and fun! I wish the single ladies wouldn't beat themselves up about not having "the one" to celebrate this hallmark holiday with..... Get over it! Girl friends can be a perfect substitute!! I know life can go either way on this "holiday" but what you make of it it what really matters!!
So on that note:
You know who you are!!! Will you?!
What are your plans this Valentines?!
