yes, i put this up a year ago. but don’t they look yummy?
so many people hate valentine’s day. i don’t think there is anything to hate about it, unless you only view it as a time to tell your significant other how much you adore them, and you happen to be quite single and very bitter about that fact– so of course you hate february 14th since you feel that it’s personally trying to make fun of you because of how single you are. but for me, it’s more of a family holiday. my mumsie has always given us candy in pink, sprinkled confetti on the table, and my parents have always given us mushy cards to tell us how much they love us.
today we’ll be decorating the cookies she made yesterday with pink frosting and later someone will make pudding and layer it with raspberries to get the real “festive” feel. a few of us will actually make cards for family members (still don’t know if i’ll be one of the ones this year) and we’ll all eat a dinner together.
flowers are nice and i’m sure a box of chocolates from that certain someone you love so much would be just dandy, but i’ll take this day how it is — a time for me to tell my family how much i love and appreciate them.
