As I reflect on this year's Hallmark Holiday I realize that I actually enjoy Valentine's Day. It's what Christmas could be if it didn't come with forced, pressure filled family time. It's a day to tell the people in your life that you care about them, however you see fit. And that is pretty awesome. You don't need all the crap that comes with it- candy, hearts, flowers, lingerie. All you need to do is give someone a moment and remind them that no one is truly alone on Valentine's Day. Spend a little time with your loved-ones. Be it on the phone, in person or by note. And magically, that person's Valentine's Day that much less miserable.
These few days since Valentine's Day has made me realize everyday can be Valentine's Day. Just take a breather and thank those around you for being there. So. Thank you. I wouldn't be who I am without any of you. Happy Belated Valentine's Day, lovies. Or rather, Happy February 17th. You make my day brighter with each smile.
