Happy Valentine’s Day to Us All

Every year I get this anti-Valentine’s Day vibe from posters across the internet.  I think it is time we took the romance out of the holiday and made it strictly about love – love for family, love for pets, love for art, love for one another.  Spend the day with the ones you love, or doing the things you love.

I’ve always adored Valentine’s Day because the association with flowers seems to be the first herald of spring.  How can that be a bad thing?

Best wishes to all my Valentines!

  3. Thank you Lizzie. Happy Valentine’s to you too! I have a fillet steak supper, and a nice bottle of red, lined up for this evening. Simon’s bought me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, although it’s also 20 years TO THE DAY since we had our first date.

    Two of my girlfriends are coming over this afternoon. They think we’re having coffee, but I have Champagne and chocolates lined up for them. They’re both single ladies, so as there’s no fella to treat them, I figured I’d do it instead. Should be a fun afternoon! 🙂 x
