I'm sure you all know by now what today is. That's right. Let's get down to business.
I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day. It just seems like a made up deal for people to be forced into stopping last minute at the local CVS or gas station to purchase a heart-shaped box of chocolates and roses wrapped in celephane tubing, be forced to tell their partner how much their heart skips a beat at the thought of them, and be forced to not look disappointed when their magical hopes and dreams are dashed at the sight of a sorry-looking stuffed animal and a bucket of KFC. If that doesn't say "romantic", I don't know what does.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not a vDay hater. I would never turn away a bouquet of flowers (as long as they weren't roses or carnations because those are stupid) or a free meal (because, free meal? Duh.), or even a surprise birthday party (what better way to SURPRISE your significant other than to make their birthday party nowhere near their birthday? I mean seriously, amirite??). But celebrating a day where we practically have to barf love all over each other doesn't really sound too exciting to me.
In honor of this most special day, I'd like to share some of my favorite Valentine cards courtesy of SomeEcards.
