Happy Valentine’s Day! Over the years, I have grown to like Valentine’s Day more each year.  I think it is what you make it.  If you want to think of it as a materialistic, “Hallmark” created holiday, that’s fine.  I like to look at it as a time where you can have a whole day to spend time with just you and your significant other, with no distractions of other people.  Although there are several times to do this throughout the year, I especially look forward to Valentine’s Day.  Everyone’s lives get really busy and it is nice to have a special day to be alone.  Tonight, TJ and I are planning on staying home and cooking steak, roasted potatoes, and asparagus while watching some of our favorite tv shows on hulu.  If you’re a single lady (or not), then Valentine’s day can still be really fun!  Throw a ‘Gal’entine’s Day party and invite some girlfriends over for wine.  This past Monday, I had some friends over for the best ‘Gal’entines celebration.  I filled the bar-cart drink dispenser with pink lemonade, served wine and other sweet treats, and decorated the apartment with some really cute decorations.  Everyone brought their own dish and it was wonderful.  I even sprinkled pink rose petals on my doormat as a festive welcome.  It was a great time with great gal pals.  
Oh, and today is my parent’s 30th anniversary! How happy. I love them.  
Hope you all enjoy the weekend.

  1. Whenever I'm in a relationship, I can plan something special with my partner without any distractions at any time of the year. It doesn't have to be during V-Day. To each their own.
