Valentine's Day

Is it surprising to anyone out there that I love Valentine's Day?  No?

Sure, it can be a little schmaltzy.  Sure, it's a little lot overcommercialized.  

But I love love. (Speaking of schmaltz, I'm aware I may have permanently lost readers with that sentence.) The argument against Valentine's Day with which I align most closely is that love should be celebrated every day, not just on Feb. 14.  I really do wish people celebrated it every day.  And not just romantic love, either.  This is a perfecto day to remind those dear to you how great you think they are.  (And if I had a dog, I would not rule out giving it a Valentine, either.)

Go tell someone you love him or her, okay? I mean, maybe not a colleague, but friends and family tend to appreciate this sort of thing.
More love.  More heart.  That's it.

Wishing you lots of both, from Miles and Laurel.

  1. I'm sure my dogs would accept a Valentine, since you don't have one of your own :)
