Valentine's love - as in, I have love towards Valentine's Day. I think it is such a fun day. And really, I always have. It's not just now that I have a permanent Valentine who is such a good man that he always buys me flowers and usually chocolates and sometimes some other gift too. It's a fun holiday! Why shouldn't we celebrate our love? Not just romantic love, but love in general.
Love makes the world turn.
Love fuels service to our fellow man.
Love conquers all.
Love is a many splendored thing.
Love is blind.
Love is all you need.
Why not celebrate the love you have for your parents, children, friends, spouse, chocolate, comfy shoes, Oreo Cakesters, reading a book in a warm bed, kissing new babies, the smell of new babies. I love all those things and I plan on celebrating it. Actually, I already started celebrating. Below are some picture of my Valentine's decorations. And they've been up since January. Is that obsessive? I don't think so. I think it's just happy.
As an added bonus, Valentine's Day gets me through the cold winter until Spring comes. Soon my Daffodils will be popping up and my kids will be frolicking outside again. I can't wait.
Just for fun, tell me, did I leave any "love cliche's" out of my list above? Let's compile a complete list of love cliche's.
