Truth time: I've never really put much effort into Valentine's Day. Actually I don't put much effort into any holiday. On one hand, I'm rarely disappointed. On the other hand, my poor future children will have to fend for themselves when it comes to anything besides birthdays and Christmas. My kids will be the ones that show up to school with the weird Valentine's that no one wanted because it was the only box left at Wal-Greens from the night before. Their Halloween costumes will be store-bought. Easter baskets will be non-existent. It's not that I have any hard feelings against holidays, and especially not against the day of love, in fact I like holidays -- it's just that I don't know -- I'm lazy? Apathetic? Busy? Cheap? Tired? Absent-minded? Terrible at things that include feelings? Yes. Yes to all of the above.
All that to say I had full on plans to wear the cutest pink dress and look all Valentines-y, etc. But we've been running full steam ahead since getting back last Friday night and I'm just tired. The thought of putting a dress on today made we want to pull the covers a little bit tighter and postpone Valentine's Day until I got more sleep. So I compromised with a little bit of pink today. Not quite a full on Valentine's post, since I forgot to make my hands into a Taylor Swift heart in one of the photos, but still full of love. Love for colored jeans, love for you guys, for full cups of coffee, my husband's sunnies to hide the bags under my eyes, for the fact that I still have time to become a better person before I produce offspring. See? Totally full of love today, as misplaced as it may be.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends. May gifts of chocolate be plentiful today and if not, remember it shall be 50% off tomorrow.
