Unlike much of the internet I seem to have stumbled across, I LIKE Valentine’s Day. But that’s because I am happily married and hope and plan to stay that way. I certainly understand why it can be so stressful to so many people.
My husband and I celebrate by picking something low-key we’d both like to do, like go to a movie or watch a DVD we both expect to enjoy, and we’d rather cook a special treat dinner at home than fight the restaurant crowds. We also like laughing together at jewelry commercials that imply you can buy love with diamonds. In short, we make it about both of us instead of buying into marketing expectations or assuming that the boy has to do something special for the girl.
Thanks to Polite Dissent for the image! Happy Valentine’s Day, KC! I love you.
