Love Love Love.
So, it's Valentine's Day today. When I woke up this morning, there was a lot of poo-pooing of this particular holiday on the facebook. And if you missed my response status this morning, I will share it again...
I couldn't really come up with better words to say that again, and rather than try to paraphrase myself, I figured just reposting it here made more sense. And it's true. I LOVE hearts. I enjoy Valentine's Day if for no other reason than there are big red hearts everywhere you go. And I love LOVE. Not just in my own life, but really in everyone's - I get so excited when the people I care about find love and happiness of their own! I think it is just the best.
I had a conversation with my friend Mallorie recently about how the trend these days seems to be to bash Valentine's Day and romance and all that. The conversation came up because a good friend of mine runs an awesome little gallery and they were doing the whole anti-Valentine's Day show. Now, I don't have a problem with that - it's been a popular group show theme for years... but the truth is, for ME - it would have felt hypocritical to create something for that show because I don't really have anything against today. Not that I want flowers or sappy cards or mall diamonds or anything from Ryan. I'm way happier just having him reach over t hold my hand when we're sitting on the couch watching bad tv on any old day of the year. But I see no reason to coolly try to crap all over today. Love is awesome. Hearts are pretty. Red and pink are both kick-ass colors. And chocolate rules!
Lots of love to each and every one of you!
