Valentine's Day in Perspective

I think of a Valentine 
as those you share your heart with... 
whether they be family, friends, neighbors, etc... 
There can be a special one... 
but that doesn't rule out the others! 
There are ways to look at it in different lights... 
LOVE has many different faces! 
This holiday is frequently viewed in a negative light to some not in a current "ROMANTIC" relationship... I do see their point... BUT, if we could see this as a "make someone smile... who has made YOU smile" day... or a "think of others you care about" day... maybe that would help it be a bit better. It doesn't need to be a day to spend money... You can post a message by e-mail or facebook... make a call just to let someone know you thought of them... Share a piece of your heart... ♥
A neighbor bring us a plate of cookies for 
She DEFINITELY made me smile. ... ;D
So Happy Valentine's Day, my friends... 
sharing a piece of my heart with YOU!! 

♥ (((HUGS)) ♥
1.  Did you get any Valentine's Gifts?
2.  What is your favorite topping on something toasted?
3.  Do you pick out your outfit the night before?
4.  What food item do you absolutely despise?
5.  Righty or lefty?

#1) Did you get any Valentine's Gifts?
I awoke to a box of Ferrer Rocher on my bed! 
YUMMY!! Since it's a BOX, do I have to SHARE?? 
LOL!! (Don't worry... I WILL!)  ;p 
We are going on a little trip, too...  ;D 
#2) What is your favorite topping on something toasted?
It TOTALLY depends on WHAT it is that is TOASTED... 
If it's toasted bread or English Muffins... 
Strawberry or raspberry preserves...  
But if it's a BAGEL... 
I LOVE Mixed Berry Cream Cheese on it! 
Not a HEALTHY option... 
but OH SO YUMMY for an occasional splurge!
For Italian or French bread? Butter/GARLIC! 
PUMPKIN SEEDS? Butter/lightly salted.  ;D 
3.  Do you pick out your outfit the night before?
Not unless there's something important 
OR on vacation... 
(VACATION gets obsessively planned 
day by day WAY in advance 
for me AND Hubby... so as NOT to CLASH... 
LOL!  I'm TRYING not to be so OCD 
about it this next time.  ;p) 
4.  What food item do you absolutely despise?
5.  Righty or lefty? 
(Doesn't that apply to EVERYTHING?) 
LOL!!  ;p
MOST of the images in this post are not mine. 
Photos of me and Hubby and the HEART are mine.  ;D

I love your inclusive approach. So many gals and guys without a significant other feel left out. If hearts beat for everyone, there's a lot of love to share.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

Valentines day is definately a day for LOVE and everybody loves somebody!

And what? You don't like seafood? That is my favorite - I would have loved to awoken to never ending shrimp this morning!! ha ha

Jo-anne "Blossy" said...

What a wonderful Valentine surprise for you. Ferrer Rocher are definitely one of the most delicious chocolates EVER!
Since you don't like seafood I think I might help myself to your share if that's okay. I love it!
have a great week!

I kinda went crazy over Valentines this week. One of the biggest reasons....(it's gonna sound weird)....to get rid of the red. I'm OVER red right now. (told ya it was weird)
I saw them putting Easter stuff up in the store and I almost started crying.

It's been a long winter.

So fun to get to know those things about you.
I love crab legs. I hope we can still be friends.

I totally agree with you~it's about love in general, not necessarily romantic love. In fact, I set a special table for the kids, giving them Valentines and treats, rather than Ster. By the way~seafood rocks, Hol! But then again, Ster hates it, too. Tomatoe, tommotto. That's what makes the world go round. :)

Beverly @ The Buzz said...

Yea! Another seafood hater! Most people think I'm crazy, but the looks, the smell, not to mention the taste--yuck! Visiting from MMOM. Hope you'll stop by mine sometime!

Hi - came by to link up to Awareness Wednesday - shame to see it not on. I have a post for mental health stigma anyway. Displaying your badge. Shah ;) .X

But those crabs look SO GOOD!

I love Pumpkin seeds too. Hope you had a nice V-Day.
