The L O V E Thing

I don't get the whole fuss about Valentine Day...

After having my so called "first date" with my ex-boyfie on Valentine's Day 9 years ago, I've never wanted to go out ANYWHERE on 14 February anymore. My memory of the so called date is pretty hazy ( or so I have to pretend since husband darling reads this blog hahaha) but what I remembered the most was the traffic, horrible crowd, ridiculously expensive roses and packed restaurant. You can't walk across any mall without bumping into some ridiculously hormone charged teenager.

Coupled with my hatred for packed rooms and crowds, I've stopped celebrating Valentine all together after that. Other than the religious implications of celebrating Vday, as I grow older (and more mature) I just don't see the rationale of honouring one day for LOVE when you can treat every single day as special for your love ones. You don't need Hallmark/Memory Lane/CardDuta (for the cheapskates) the florist, or other commercialized entity that is capitalizing on Valentine's Day to help you show your partner that you cherish and appreciate them.

So ladies dress up in a gorgeous dress for our partners and guys buy your missus flowers and chocolates and celebrate your love on any random day. They deserve it for making you as happy as you are today.

I found this cute cards online, just thought I'll share it with everyone for fun. Have a great Friday & weekend everyone :)
