Faded Pink Hearts

Tears stream down my face as I try to catch my breath from laughter.  Valentine nightmares of our elementary day self's shared from one friend to another, "I always got the lion king card cause they were neutral save for one strip 'Let's walk on the wild side'. . . the horror!"

Valentine's day is such an interesting holiday.  I'll be really honest here, and please don't hate me for it: I don't like Valentine's day.  I don't hate it either... just we aren't in "the same circles".  I never really celebrated it.  My father when I got late into high school started giving me gifts and before that I got the occasional chocolate.  But I'm a bit to pragmatic.  If Chris handed me a bunch of flowers I don't know what I would do but I know what I would be thinking, of all the practical and non-wasteful (I know I'm a heathen I think that cut flowers are wasteful... the romantic in me just doesn't care for them, potted flowers on the other hand: I'm game).

I'm much more a show me you love me by mowing the grass or cleaning the bathroom or by saving and going on a vacation!

But for all my protests and all my quandary on the issue, last year I had change of heart to a degree.  I have a dear far flung friend who is such a huge fan of V day.  She decks her house out in hearts, she wears red and pink all week, she hands out little tokens of love.  She basks in all that is V day.  So to you Amanda, thank you for showing me what there is to love about this interesting holiday and more than anything I hope that you have a spectacular V-day tomorrow!

  7. Great photos! I sort of agree with you about the flowers. I'd love to have plants but they bring in bugs so the only live things in my house are kids and pets!

    1. That's legit. I do have an Ivy plant and a little herb garden... neither bloom but the herbs taste good so I think that beats out blooms ;P
