Everything about Valentine's Day was so special. I loved Valentine's as a single gal, don't get me wrong. I had a blast going out with friends and swapping presents with my family. I hear the arguments about how Valentine's is manufactured and commercial, but I think it's fun to have a day to celebrate love.
This was the first year I had a really magical Valentine's Day. Stop reading now if the cheesiness is too much ;) Boyfriend sent flowers to my desk (a secret dream come true) and took me out for an amazing night. And you bet I made sure he felt special too.
I think my favorite part though were these little candy grams he had sent to me too. When I picked them up in the lobby, all the comments almost made me want to shrivel into the floor and die. Except they ended up being so adorable that I had to forgive him! Instead of silly notes, each lollipop had one of our favorite song lyrics... or maybe my favorites that I've made boyfriend love too.
I used to pretend to be such a cynic about all this business, but I think I'm ready to embrace it 110%. Family and friends, watch out!
