How was your valentine's day?
I'm not a big fan of manufactured holidays - Valentine's, Mother's Day, Secretary's Day. The idea of a day someone else has picked out and decreed will be a day to share your love with those around. Christmas is rapidly moving into that category - just another deadline by which we have to buy a gift. Just don't like it. But, my husband sends me flowers every year - tulips. They're my favorite flower and it's when they're in season. The whole Valentine's thing just helps him remember to do it every year. So I enjoyed my beautiful flowers, but that was it. Worst part is trying to avoid all the candy and stuff that people bring to work and leave in the kitchen hoping to get rid of it. Hard to avoid it all!
