Happy Valentine's Day from Two Cats and a Cradle!
I have been lucky enough to have the same Valentine since I was 17. We've been together for 22 years and he still makes me laugh. He's the first person I want to call when something exciting happens. And he always makes me feel better if I am having a bad day. I feel loved everyday.
However, Valentine's Day isn't really a day that we go crazy with. We have in years past, but there is just way too much pressure for it be a super romantic day. I think it also makes some people feel like if they are not in a relationship, then they are not special. You are. Honestly, I don't want that Kay's Open Heart necklace (please, no!) or some fancy overpriced dinner. To me, those things are overrated. What I think is important is letting the people you care about know how much they are loved. Valentine's Day should be a day that we show kindness to someone, spend some actual time together or go that extra mile to help out. So, show some love to someone this Valentine's Day.
My Valentine is getting some chocolate goodies and I am going to put away the cell phone for the evening. I think I can go one day without playing Words with Friends! xo
