Ah love is in the air…flowers galore, balloons, diamonds, glorious cakes, chocolate hearts, chocolate desserts, chocolate candies… yeah, a girl can dream right?
I’m torn on my whole thoughts on V-day. I’ve read the history of how some people say it came about but for me it’s become too commercialized to truly enjoy it. Candy and chocolate prices rise, flowers quadruple in cost and people feel obligated to buy you something. They feel it has to be the biggest, shiniest, most expensive thing out there. The more you spend the more they love you.. right? Wrong!
For me, what really gets me and shows that you love me… listen to me, hug me when I’m sad, made me a card out of construction paper and crayons and love me. Isn’t after all that’s what love is truly about? Why making something to simple, honest and pure into this Hollywood extravaganza?
So yeah, I’ll admit it, I like flowers and candies and diamonds (HELLO!!! I’m still a girl! We like sparkly things) but I’d give it all up for a simple “I love you”, a handmade card or even making me dinner or dessert (even if it failed!). Why? Because it shows me that you took the time to think about me and made an effort. For me it’s the little things and all those little things can outshine the biggest diamond any day!
So to you and your loved ones Happy Puffy Heart Day!
