song of the day: 'kissing you' by des'ree
i feel like a giddy little girl today! i am so excited about the meal i have planned for tonight, my gift for matt (wink wink), and just what this holiday means to me. i know not everyone is into it, and that's okay. for me, it's kind of magical. and no amount of bad commercials for lame cards, heart shaped diamond necklaces, and boxed chocolates can take that away from me (and believe me, i've already told matt that if he ever buys me one of the above, it's over.)
and i know that you're supposed to be romantic every day of the year. why do you have to have a holiday to remind you and isn't it just an evil ploy to get you to buy more stuff? and if all this was true, there would be no unhappy marriages and divorce would be nonexistent. whatever. it's too easy to let life get in the way. today is just one day to set aside and make an effort. and that is very important.
