Happy Valentine's Day!

Just for you,
for Valentine's Day!
 

I knew I should have bought myself some chocolates yesterday when I was at Target!
 
Not that I need them, but don't they look good?
 
My favorites are chocolate covered nuts.


Umm Umm Ummm

I know people complain that Valentine's Day is a "commercial" holiday. It's only to get people to spend money on "stupid" things like candy and chocolates and cards and jewelry and the what not.

People say they don't need to have to have a "holiday" to say you love someone.

But what those people are forgetting,  is that some people NEED a holiday. Because their minds don't work any other way! They don't just think to go buy someone something and/or tell someone they love them just because.

Which is sad.

Every day should be like that, but let's face it, for some of us, it's not!

And I'm not saying I need a big fat diamond.

I'd take a heart cut out of some newspaper or a grocery sack with some little love note scribbled on it.

It's the thought that truely does count.

So go tell someone you love them.

Give them a paper heart cut out or whatever.

They'll remember that you took the time and effort to tell them that they are special to you.

I know what you mean. It is the thought that counts. My husband feels like he should either go big or go home when it comes to Valentines Day. IF he can't buy me a huge flower arrangement or some fancy gift, he opts for NOTHING rather than getting me a single rose or a card or at least a little something. It is definitely hard for me to get excited about Valentine's Day sometimes because of it. *sigh*

YOu know what's funny? I love, love, love chocolate, but I'm not a big chocolate box person - I'm pretty picky I guess, haha!

LOL! Your blog is almost the opposite of mine today. That said, I totally understand your point. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY. And . . . I hope you get the biggest box of chocolates EVER!!

PS: If you do - please send a few my way, OK?!

Sigh... i'm one of those who don't like Valentines Day due to the commercialism.
But I do go out of my way to let my loved one's know I love em!

I'm kind of over people being snarky about Valentine's Day. They waste the whole day being bitter when they could be spreading the love. Kind of sad.
