In the name of lurv.

I have to say, I had no idea what to post about today. I have been staring at this blank page for 3 hours, wondering what I can say about love, that everyone else hasn't made the obvious...


I finally came up with something...
So, please forgive if I ramble.

What does Valentines Day or having a Valentine mean to me?


So, what does Valentines Day mean to me?
I don't think there's a perfect explanation...

 I think it's about being happy. And being able to celebrating the people I am so lucky to love.
 In this crazy world we live, we take just one day out of the other 364 days and
 celebrate each other and the love we share and let it be known in all sorts of ways...
I think we should take this day and celebrate not one person,
 but all of the people we love and have in our lives...

What does having a Valentine mean to me?
It's not the chocolate, it's not the gifts, or the flowers.
It's the love shown for one another in a simple gesture of saying "I love you".

It means that it doesn't have to be one specific person, it can be everyone in my life....
Including you, because all of you inspire me by being so absolutely amazing...
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your comments and your friendship...
Of course I have a Valentine, but not just one...

So, just before you think you still don't have a Valentine... 
I wanted to ask you...


What does having a Valentine or V-Day mean to ya'll??

XoXo,

It's a big commercial thing. It's all about pushing people to spend money on heart shaped stuff and on fancy dinners.
