Lots of Love!

Hey Lovies!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Ahhh...A day all about PINK, and RED, and hearts, and hugs & kisses, and chocolate and all the people that we LOVE to bits!

As you guys may know, Aaron and I cook a fancy, yummy meal together each Valentine's Day. It is a tradition we have grown so so fond of! We normally go with a recipe from Martha, or Food Network. We are still tossing ideas around as I write this. And now with pinterest...yowzer...there are just endless possibilties!

Walt will be going to see his girlfriend, and I'm sure Jason will be out on the town. So it will be a quiet, cozy evening here in the house. Just us, yummy dinner (and dessert) and the pups!

And let me take a moment to disagree with what all the cliche movies & stuff try to force feed us about how Valentines Day is only for couples or those lucky enough to have dates. NOT TRUE. Valentines Day is about the celebration of LOVE...in all it's shapes, sizes, colors, flavors, etc, etc... Love is a wonderful thing...the more the better. You don't need a boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse.
Love your family, friends...call your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother. Heck, take the day to love yourself. Treat yourself to something you love. Make some food you love. Create some art you love. To me, Valentines is wide open to interpretation and it's always been way at the tippy top of my fave holiday list.
Me and Aar decided a while back that it would be a day to just focus on us...no stress...no where to be...no where to go. Just us doing what we wanna do, when we wanna do it. And its been working just fine for us...definitely one of our favorite days of the year.

What do you guys have planned?
Any fancy restaurants? Cutesy traditions? Special treats? I'd love to hear about them!

LOVE you guys to bits!

    I'm single and I love Valentine's day! I give gifts to my son, friends, coworkers, and strangers on this day because it makes me feel good and they don't expect it. I agree, it's a celebration of love. And...I'll buy myself flowers. Why not?! :-D
