14 Feb valentine’s day is stupid.
Now, before you yell at me, hear me out.
I’m all about the love, but Valentine’s Day is stupid. Love shouldn’t be restricted to one day a year. If you love someone, you should tell them every day. Couples should not need an excuse to dress up and go out to dinner at a nice restaurant. I would much prefer a spontaneous invitation to dinner from my husband on a regular day of the week than a planned one the same day, in the same month, every year. If you love someone, you should tell them every day.
That being said, I am looking forward to our annual Valentine’s night dinner out. Ed won’t tell me where we’re going, and I love that about him. I’m lucky, because my husband knows the value of a Valentine’s Day dinner reservation, but also reserves the right to take me out on plenty other non-ocassion days of the year, and does so frequently.
So, while I still think Valentine’s Day is stupid, I’m not going so far as to boycott a romantic night out with my husband! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and please, please tell your loved ones that you love them on every other day of the year too. Happy Valentine’s Day!
(I’m sure you are all curious about the above image. I am too. I wish I could explain it. This group of Valentine runners happened to be jogging past as we were downtown Saturday afternoon for an engagement shoot. If anyone knows what this was about, please let me know in the comments!)
Here’s to Valentine’s Day. And not boycotting it, even if you’re against the idea. And runners in dresses. Cheers!
