One of My Favorite Days

I love Valentine's Day!  My parents always made it a special day where we just loved each other.  I do not understand this "singles awareness" thing or all the schmaltz having to do with romance.  Don't get me wrong.  I ADORE romance.  And I wouldn't say no to diamonds or rubies or pearls.  :)   But why can't we just all be OK with Valentine's Day being about love?  When I rule the world, Valentine's Day is just going to be about love.

Plus, it's fun!  You get to decorate a fun box.  You get to choose cute Valentine cards (yes, they're cheesy, and I still love them).  You get to have candy.  You get to have a party.

OK, maybe all of that stuff only happens in grade school, but it shouldn't.  When I rule the world, we're all having a party, eating candy, and reading cheesy Valentine cards.

I made some cute iPods out of boxes of Valentine candy. And I made pink and white cupcakes with red sprinkles.  And I bought special treats for our kids and a sappy card (and tickets for this weekend) for my sweetheart.

But most of all, I love you, all my friends and family!  When I rule the world, we will have a day when I can tell you that as much as I want.
