Love.

We aren't huge Valentine-sy people, and while I completely agree that it has become over commercialised and that I don't need a specific day to show Richard I love him, it is still nice to be nice.

I like to think of it more as a day where we remind ourselves of all the people and things that we love to do, and to celebrate that. Not just romantic love, and definitely not Hallmark and roses with babies breath (oh, babies breath how did you turn so tacky) kinda love. But just love. For our partners, for our children, for our friends, for our planet.

I also like to think of it as a day where I sit on the couch with my love, popcorn & treats. He brought me some Rockets Love Hearts home from work, which I have a secret love for.

Speaking of secret loves, the wee quote on the card is a line from an oh-so-guilty-pleasure of ours, that I will now share with you all.


Alrighty, I'm off to spend some more time with my love.....and Tammy Faye.

that is the exact card that i gave to my little one for Valentines. i guess we're sort of on the same "not at all about Hallmark on Vday" page.

How lovely! We were so happy to spend part of the day with you two... and a room full of crazy children.
