Well, it's Valentine's Day. What say you about this holiday? I just so happen to love it. In college, before I was coupled up, my girlfriends and roommates would go all out for this holiday. Chinese food was always on the top of the list, a very special ganache cake, flowers, hand-selected valentine's day cards and, quite obviously, the most romantic movie of the 21st century: Moulin Rouge. We were all, for the most part, single but does that mean this day is reserved for the lovers? I don't think so.
I still send Valentines to all my friends (and a certain 5-year-old and 3-year-old I know) and, to me, that's the best part. Letting people who don't hear it every day from you that, yes, I do love you and you mean a lot to me.
So, while Jon is my Valentine today and every day, I think this holiday can so easily get lost in translation. Happy V-day to you and yours and hey, go get yourself a ganache cake, ok? I think we both know you deserve at least two pieces.
