Happy Valentines' Day!

Whether you have a special someone or not, I'm hoping that your day is filled with sweets and kindess and love. I remember the many years that I was single, and I thought Valentines' Day was a holiday for letting people in relationships feel smug and people who were single feel tortured. But over the years, I've realized that today is a day to celebrate "love," and love is for everyone! Today I celebrate my love for my family, my friends, my puppy, my mans, my new leopard flats, my pumpkin ice cream stashed in the fridge...you get the idea. I'm very in love with love! And I don't mind having a day to indulge in that. Besides, today is a day when sweets and chocolate are plentiful, no matter where you go, so you'll get no complaints from me. Even my sterile corporate office has chocolate lingering about everywhere, and that is saying something.

So this post is dedicated to things that I love (all in VERY different ways). And here's a special heartfelt wish for all of you...hope you have a lot of love to celebrate today like I do...Happy Love Day!

I LOVE my sisters. Sisters are like built-in best friends. I don't know what I'd do without them! (Photo credit)
I LOVE polka dots!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my pup. She brings me more joy than I ever imagined.
And finally, I LOVE the mans. I'm not one to gush, but he really is one of the most understanding, forgiving, and sweet people I have ever met. He always makes me feel beautiful, even on my most ugliest and insecurest (is that a word?) of days, and he keeps me laughing, which is not always the easiest task with all the stressful things I have going on in my life. And although he also makes a LOT (I mean, a LOT. Did I mention, a LOT?) of mistakes, he also makes amazing recoveries, which keeps things interesting (to say the least) after all these years. Happy Valentines' Day, Boyfriend!
