You know, earlier this week I was all like, 'meh... Valentine's Day'... I mean I have a healthy liking for chocolate, red, pink, sparkles and hearts but it can all feel a little manufactured and fake.
Then the night before, I randomly painted hearts on my left hand (I didn't even attempt the right) and I think the fumes got to me because I suddenly decided that Valentine's Day was something I wanted to do this year.
So at 3:17 p.m. on Valentine's Day, I was in line at the Dollar Store buying a tinsel heart to hang on the front door. This heart cost me $1.25*. It now has to hang on the door for at least a week to get maximum return on investment. And I continued my Valentine's Day activity by distributing some chocolates and writing some cards. Matt was gone so I'm planning on making a fancy dinner this weekend. And if I don't make dinner it's no big deal because when you've planned to do nothing, anything exceeds expectations.
And while Valentine's is probably never going to become some huge deal in my life, it's kinda nice to celebrate love and friends. Tinsel hearts are pretty cool too.


*sneakily played Dollar Store, adding that extra quarter...
