My Funny Valentine

Last night I enjoyed a cute relaxing, quiet picnic with my Valentine at one of the parks here in Vegas that had a nice view of the Strip.  We ordered take out and kept it low key because we just didn't feel like getting dressed up and sitting in a restaurant and having to stress about making a reservation on time.  I dressed down and warm which was why I didn't take any pics of myself in an outfit! Haha! I must say it was nice not having to worry about what to wear.  Valentine's Day shouldn't be so commercialized on material things like Christmas has become, instead it should be about the people that you have in your life. Of course it's fun to get dressed up for a special occasion, I'm not saying that you shouldn't have fun with it!  I was never one of those people that was a "Debbie Downer" about how I don't have a Valentine in the past because I made sure that I spent it with people that I loved and cared about such as my family or friends.  Being in good company that allows you to laugh till your stomach hurts is key! My boyfriend may not be perfect, but he does know how to make me laugh! It's sad that it takes a special holiday to help remind us all how to LOVE.  What about the other 364 days in a year? Do you LOVE the people in your life enough?  I know we all get busy with our lives, but it's always nice to hug someone,  call that person you've been meaning to call, or perform a nice simple gesture for someone.  Our stay here on earth is not permanent and our tomorrows are not promised so we might as well enjoy each other's company while we are all here! XOXO
