Valentine’s Day (like many commercial American holidays) leaves me torn between feelings of love and kindness and warmth for my friends and family… and the pressure and guilt of finding the right gift or saying the right words to make the day not just special, but the BEST DAY EVER!!!! Ugh.
I’ve been able to safely avoid V-Day for a few years, what with being single and traveling with all those other happy single folks, but this year I’m fortunate enough (truly) to have to deal with this redpinklacyfroofrooheartsandkisses day. How do I make this day special without placing too much emphasis on it’s need to be special? Oh the irony!
