Valentine’s Day has come and gone.. you like how I totally ignored it on my blog..

It’s not that I’m a “hater.”

I just don’t take that holiday too seriously.

I’ve ignored this holiday for several years.  In fact, I zoom by it completely on my blog in 2012 and 2010.  The only reasons I made a big deal about it in 2011 and 2009 were because they were “firsts” for Hubby and I.

In 2009, it was our first Valentines Day. 

In 2011, it was our first Valentines Day as a married couple.

I guess we should have celebrated it because it was our first Valentines Day as a family, but who has time for that when you’re dealing with a five month old!

This year, it wasn’t spectacular.  M had a cold and I didn’t want to take her out in the cold air..

First Christmas, now Valentines Day.. I’m thinking she may be allergic to holidays!

I think that as M gets older, I would like to see Hubby do something special for her.  I remember my dad buying my mom and I chocolates for Valentines Day, and I’d like to see Hubby do something like that for M. 

It’s a memory from my childhood that I cherish, and I’d love for M to have the same.

What sort of things did you do for your children on Valentines Day?


Valentine’s Day.

February 14th.

Now.. all the people that know me know that I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person.  My thing is that Valentine’s Day is just once a year.  Why do guys HAVE to be nice to their girlfriends/wives/etc only once a year?  Shouldn’t the “Valentine’s Day” spirit be something that is expressed all year long?

I also think that the one day that should be special between a couple is their ANNIVERSARY.  Not Valentine’s Day.

It’s meant to be a feast day for St. Valentine.

Anyway, it’s OT’s and mine’s first Valentine’s Day together.  I’m not really asking for anything at all.  I’m not really expecting to go anywhere or do anything at all.  The one thing I did want was for us to be together that day.

I don’t expect flowers, candy, a cute card, or any such gesture that day.  I mean, he’s more than welcome to do so, but it’s really not expected and I won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t do anything.  I’ll just be glad that he’s there with me.

Now, I’ll be disappointed and sad if he missed our anniversary.

Those are the days that are the most important to me when it comes to relationships.

So, I pretty much make it easy for the guys that I have dated in the past.  They usually seem to be pretty relieved when they find out my stance on V-day.

I’m just glad that I get to spend that day with a pretty cool guy this year.  Blessed.
