love might be where you find it

do you celebrate valentine's day? or do you eye-roll the holiday?

we'll celebrate.

i'll celebrate anything, really.

life is too short to give up the small celebrations in life--valentine's day, a lost tooth, a good grade, a clean bill of health, finding a twenty in your coat pocket.

so, is love a giant-red-foiled-heart-shaped-box-of-chocolates? or is it a dozen red long-stemmed roses? perhaps it's a diamond necklace?

i don't know.

around here, it's getting up at 6:00 am to finish painting a spongebob squarepants valentine's box for a certain 10 year old.

and it's also, cleaning the kitty litter box before leaving for school.

it can be leaving enough milk in the carton for the next breakfast-eater.

and turning on just enough light to see, but not so much that it wakes the whole house at five in the morning.

love is many things. celebrated in little moments, and when the day comes around that celebrates love with you....then a little chocolate won't kill you.right?

and sushi wouldn't hurt, either. :)

hugs and kisses, love and light


  1. Hmmm, Tony and I ignore it. He has never been a day of Hallmark holidays. Me, I don't care either way. We didn't even say Happy Valentines Day to each other. But we are heading to NYC tonight to see Matthew Perryman Jones and Allie play at Rockwood Two tonight and THAT is a great Valentine or anytime present! Hope you had a great day!

  2. I celebrate love every's the only way to go for me!

    ciao bella

    may your life be filled with the sweet charm of bliss!

  4. Wonderful Blog. I am a 43 year old too! Checking out blogs from ... oh well, I don't know where I am here from there! Geeez. Anyway, I enjoyed your Valentine's day post. We were a bit mixed about the over-marketing of the holiday. I love keeping things simple lately. It seems like the kids have so much that I am searching for ways to make things more quality filled. Going to read some more of your delightful posts.
