It's All About Kindness (and Chocolate)!

Leonora Moss - Rockin' the Window Display, as usual!!

If you are a living, breathing human being, you may have noticed that The Day of the Valentine is upon us.  I have to admit that I like Valentine's Day.  In our house, we definitely don't overdo it, but it's fun.  A little dinner (at home, or out), a couple of small gifts, and most importantly, a little extra dose of kindness.  Not that we're awful to each other on the other days...  But it's nice to be especially kind for a bit. 

Here are a few things I enjoy about Valentine's Day:
  • It's an excuse for a special dinner.
  • Little kids get soooo excited. (We used to decorate paper lunch sacks.  I imagine they do something more high-tech nowadays.)
  • General cheeriness when flowers show up all over the place
  • I look fairly good in red
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts. All of the holiday shapes taste better than the year-round "cup" shape. It's a fact.

...and some things that kind of bum me out abut Valentine's Day:
  • People with crazy expectations that their partner cannot ever match up to.  (Let's keep it real, people!)
  • People who are made to feel sad when they don't have a partner to share the day with.
That last one is such a biggie.  Celebrating Valentine's Day is about Love and/or Kindness, and you don't need a significant other to partake in either.  A little dose of kindness can be given to anyone, as can a Reese's Peanut Butter Heart.

The day is yours to do with as you choose.  Enjoy or Ignore.  Either way, the Reese's Hearts are available for only a limited time...

Happy Valentine's Day!
