Congratulations, Hallmark! You have successfully created a holiday where millions open their wallets to say I love you, baby! and you get all the profit!
In all seriousness though, the emotional side of our brains longs for that connection to someone else... that's what we celebrate today. LOVE. And feeling loved in return.
I have never bought it when people say they aren't into Valentine's Day. Everyone wants to feel cherished and special. I don't want my husband to spend $50+ dollars on flowers either-- I just like it when he shows me how much he cares for me.
So, Happy Valentine's Day, blogosphere. I hope you feel cherished and treasured today!
