Next Wednesday is Valentine’s Day—everybody’s favorite greeting-card holiday filled with price-gouged roses, generic chocolates, and maybe something expensive and sparkly.
Oh, and it’s the day of love.
If you haven’t guessed, I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. It’s not that I’m bitter or anti-romance (after all, I’m quickly approaching my TEN-YEAR wedding anniversary), but I just don’t see the need for having a special day to show others that I love them.
Mark and I don’t completely ignore the holiday (last year we had an epic dinner at Waffle House, LOL, complete with lemon-lime soda in plastic champagne flutes and the magical amount of kitsch), and this year we’ll probably cook a fancy dinner at home that we can enjoy together.
What I really wanted to talk about is this: how to love on Valentine’s Day.
