Happy non-Valentines Day!

This year, as every year, I am boycotting Valentines Day.
My husband and I have been together for 22 years (yay!), and have never exchanged Valentines gifts or cards ...

Relationships need to be worked on every day.
Of course we need to look out for each other's needs, spend time together, show our love for each other with words, with gifts and with actions ... but why do it because somebody somewhere has set a certain day aside for it?

Why buy into the hype and the consumerism that surrounds Valentines Day?

For us, today will just be another day. No rings, no champagne, no cards, not even chocolates!
As it happens we are both at home today, and the children are at school ... so the possibilities of how to spend the day are endless!

Hiya, I didn't see you had a blog until now. :) Will have to link you to mine.

But yeah I know where you're coming from about valentine's day but me and he other half treated ourselves and joined in the fun without going overboard. :D

I'm glad you had a good day, Cute.
It's not like I think fun should be forbidden or anything! :D
