A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

So you say it's Valentine's Day...

Here it is Valentine's Day. My sister was telling me how a friend of hers says Valentine's Day and her anniversary are the two big days she and her husband celebrate each year. My comment was..."Wait until she has celebrated 25 or more of them, she might change her mind." While this couple has been married for 17 years and still gets a kick out of celebrating Valentine's Day, I wasn't insinuating that we shouldn't celebrate the day nor am I one of those who think it is a day of crass commercialism. In fact, I love Valentine's Day. I think it is a very cool phenomenon. A whole day set aside just to let our nearest and dearest know we love 'em.

Hey, if you feel like it is a day that is only about chocolate shops and flower shops making money, then you probably shouldn't buy flowers, candy or cards and contribute to the moral decay of those of us who do. I for one think it's awesome that we have a day, a whole day set aside in a holiday to just say...."Hey, you know what you are special to me and I love you! Pretty cool...don't you think?

I don't know about you, but I don't think one can have too many people loving them. To have a whole separate holiday where we celebrate that is just unf***ing believable. So here's to us...the lovers out there who celebrated our day today! Happy Valentine's Day!
