Happy Valentines Day!
A bit early I know, but I thought I would share for one of two reasons:
1. You're so excited about tomorrow that getting a little early enthusiasm will just add to your pleasure.
2. You so hate Valentines day that one more blog post about the day could put you over the edge. So it's a good thing we're getting it out of the way early.
In all honesty, the day isn't a huge deal for me. Which I find really ironic, since - as a long suffering singleton all through middle school, high school, and college - I DREAMED about how awesome Valentine's Day would be with a beau. So now that I have one? Meh. I'm not overly impassioned by the day.
But regardless, I do enjoy soaking up some of the romance that fills the air alongside the red and pink hear shaped confetti.
Like this article, below. Did you see it already? If not, have a tissue handy.
How about these great postsecret postcards?
So now, with that inspiration, what are you going to do for your valentine? Truth be told - we're celebrating tonight. We met on Friday 13th, so celebrating on the 13th is kind of habit back from the "OMG IT'S OUR 4 MONTH ANNIVERSARY!!!!" stage. But a nice card and gift tomorrow may be in the works. I like these graphic diy ideas, from for a song.
And, if even after all this inspiration, you still despise Valentine's day consider this - Vinegar Valentines.
Popular in Victorian times, these nasty notes were sent to deter possible Valentines - by mocking them for unpleasant characteristics. Even worse? At that time, the recipient paid the 1 cent postage fee, not the sender. Pretty sour, huh?
So what will you be this Valentine's day? Mushy or Mean? Either way - eat some chocolate!!
