In general, I agree with the concept.
You shouldn't show someone you love them, JUST on Valentine's Day.
But, you also don't have to be a stick in the mud because other people enjoy making the day special.
And I have to throw this out here too, because I've noticed these kind of comments coming from people who A) are single. or B) are in bad relationships.
....Not to say EVERYONE is in either of those situations- but the majority seem to be.
Basically, my thought is this: Love isn't to be displayed on Valentine's Day only- I think everyone knows that would just be ridiculous.
But being as Valentine's Day has been around for a long time, whether it's origins were originally about love or not, it is what is.
If you don't have a lover- go for a friend to grab a pizza with or a movie. If you don't have either, go find some family. A pet. Or just enjoy a cozy night by yourself with some chocolate and a favorite movie.
I really despise how people get so depressed about not having a "proper Valentine".
There were times I didn't have a boyfriend and so I grabbed a friend and said, "Let's do this." And we had fun and made the most out of this tradition.
Celebrate that there IS Love. All kinds of it.
That being said, I had a lovely Valentine's Day with my Husband....besides the people in the booth next to us discussing their Waiter's arm veins and how great they were....
So here are a few shots of our Valentine's Day.
I hope you had a good one, no matter what you did and who you were with.
