The Single Girl's Top 4 Reasons to celebrate Valentine's Day
1. Tulips and Truffles! Why waste an opportunity to celebrate with fresh flowers and chocolate? Come on people, you have an excuse to take that cheat day on your diet. And believe me, you are completely capable of buying these things for yourself. I do every other time I want flowers and candy!
2. Ryan Gosling, Paul Newman, Ryan Reynolds. So many great movies - Breakfast at Tiffany's, You've Got Mail, Crazy, Stupid Love, The Proposal, etc Yeah, I don't mind so much spending V-Day looking at them in a sweet. sappy, albeit unrealisitc display of life and love!
3. V-Day is fun. Around the preschool, we paint pink and red hearts on anything that will stand still! Did you know that you make a fish and a penguin using only hearts? Bet ya didn't?! Then you get to have a party with enough various forms of sugar to provide energy for the entire state of California. Okay, so maybe there was a teensy bit of sarcasm in that last bit, but it is fun to see the children so excited to pass out their valentines!
4. "All you need is love." Whether you want to admit it or not, chances are you are loved by the people in your life. This love does not have to be from a spouse or significant other, love comes in many forms. So take time to celebrate the love you do have instead of focusing on what you do not have.
I know some of you will read this and continue to whine about how Valentine's Day sucks if you are alone, and I really hate that for you. Some of us face every day without a significant other and sometimes that really sucks. But if you focus on the bad days, you will miss all of the great days!
Here's hoping you have an awesome Valentine's Day!
