Obligatory Valentine's Day Post

Everyone else is doing one, so I guess I should, too.

I like Valentine's Day. I don't LOVE it, but I definitely don't hate it. It's another reason to get presents! Or, at the very least, some flowers or a card or candy, or hell, some wine. Josh and I have spent 7 Valentine's Days together. Some have been filled with tons of presents and dinner's out with dancing. Some have been nothing but a bouquet of flowers, and a card. It doesn't matter, though. It's still fun to get that stuff.

I don't really understand it when people say they hate the day, though. I mean, I guess if you're single and MISERABLE. But....even then, you get yourself a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates. How is that bad?? I don't feel any more loved on the day. I know some people say it's a made up holiday, created by the card companies. But.....isn't EVERY modern holiday just full of overt commercialism? Hell, look at Christmas!!! It's way more commercialized & "made-up" than Valentine's Day. Look at the religious aspects behind both of the days. They're both rooted in Christianity, but the celebration is so far removed from any truth behind the religious background, that it is almost a complete farce.

Yes, even though I'm not religious, I still know some stuff, people!!! :)

Anyway, why does that stuff really matter? Just have fun, people!! Those of you who "hate" Valentine's Day - quit being so dang curmudgeon-y!!! I'm one of the most cynical, complaint-filled people I can think of, but I still enjoy it.

Flowers are pretty, candy is delicious, wine is even more delicious. Just enjoy!!

Although, I do have to say that Josh and I both made bank this year.

I got a spa day (manicure, massage, facial), and a card. I gave Josh a craft I made, and I also booked us a hotel for 3 nights in Prague. Awesome, eh?

But, Prague will have to wait a month or two. This weekend is AMSTERDAM!!

Man, we're spoiled....
