Okay, so I know a lot of people hate Valentine's Day but I've just never been one of those people... ever! I can't think of a time in my life when I detested it or cried over it. Honestly, it's just another day right? More importantly, I treat as I do a most holidays: a reason to dress festively and eat yummy food! I mean pink and red are two of my favorite colors so yay, I get to wear either of those AND I get to gorge myself with chocolate! How is this not a win-win situation??
But seriously, this is the first year Nathan and I have celebrated Valentine's Day as *husband & wife* - and may I add that we are extremely happy and excited about this. Just being able to buy each other cards that say "husband" and "wife" ... it just makes everything seem that much more special. We celebrated by going out to dinner at Spezia's and then to the movie Valentine's Day. I know some people say, "Valentine's Day is stupid because you should celebrate your love every day." Well, I disagree with this. I say, "Why not?" I mean, do you really celebrate your love adequately? every. single. day. Really?? In the midst of daily stresses from work and just life in general I think it can be difficult to make time for yourselves. So here's one day that gives you the excuse to dismiss everything else going on and just have time to yourselves. Why not?
Is it ever a bad time, especially on Valentine's Day, to show your loved one how much you care about them? I think not :)
