A Happy Valentine's Day to all! Whether you are single, dating, or married Valentine's is something we all can enjoy.
Although the "cool" thing to do now-a-days is to openly hate Valentine's Day, I feel anything but. I have never bothered myself with conforming to what everyone else is doing and I'm fairly certain that most Valentine hatred is a result of people wanting to have the cool and edgy opinion. BS, whatever. I love Disney Movies, The Notebook, and Valentine's Day, so deal with it.
For me, Valentine's is another excuse for me and my best friend/fiance to have a special evening together. There's nothing wrong with taking a day to show someone who is special to you just how much you care. Granted, you should show this love the other 364 days as well, but Valentine's provides the opportunity to do it in a special and meaningful way. And what's wrong with that?
Contrary to popular belief, if you're single, Valentine's day doesn't have to be a day to wallow in your loneliness. Rather than focus on the romantic side, simply take the opportunity to show or tell someone else in your life how important they are to you. A best friend or a mentor. I guarantee they will appreciate it and you will feel good that you expressed your feelings for someone you care about.
In conclusion, I would like to give a final shout out to my amazing fiance and girlfriend of four years. As much as it makes me vomit to see people "express their love" on the Internet (generally people make it a 'look at me' sort of proclamation rather than a sincere gesture) this is my blog, so I'll do what I want. I don't exaggerate when I say that she is my best friend in the entire world. She has literally changed my life for the better in the four years I've known her. We laugh together, can be serious together, and spend every moment together and never get tired. I never thought it was possible to love a person as much as I love and treasure her. I absolutely cannot wait to be married later this year and begin the journey of a lifetime with the ultimate co-pilot. I love you baby!
