Maybe it's just me, but Valentine's Day has never been about me and one other person. The holiday is actually my mother's favorite and growing up our house was always decorated and we had the best time creating valentines for all of our friends. My dad would cook and serve us dinner over a beautifully decorated table complete with candles. We shared our love for each other and everyone else, and had a fun time doing so!
Lot's of people complain it's a "Hallmark Holiday", and just want to buck the system by being negative and not buying anything. Then again, who said you had to buy anything? I spent $2 on stickers and the rest of my supplies are in my art stuff. It's not about spending money, getting presents, heck! It's not even about giving or receiving little paper valentines. It's about spending time with the ones you love. Life is fleeting, why not take a day to all get together, pop open a bottle of champagne and enjoy each other's company?
Happy Valentine's Day friends! I sincerly appreciate those of you who take the time to check my blog, even comment! It's nice to be a part of such a friendly and supportive little community here on the interwebs
Just my thoughts for today, I'll update soon with some sewin' ;)
