Heart Candy

Today is the one day a year when most people get off the couch and show one’s affections for that “special someone” in one’s life. I have purposefully skirted this holiday because I’m just not sure how I feel about it anymore. Of course I’ve picked up a card for my hubby and we’ll be spending this evening doing something semi-romantic, as immobile as I am at the moment. Hopefully we can make it up to this local chocolate shop, Zwahlens, that makes amazing Mayan chocolates and a Mayan candied apple.

But what is it about this holiday that makes some of us go weak in the knees, while others use those knees to run as far away as possible?

Between birthdays, Christmas, and our anniversaries, it seems like one more day to disappoint. Plus at some point in every girl’s life, this day of love has forced her to completely abandon it, a la Jessica Biel in Valentine’s Day. I’ve always wanted a giant heart pinata and endless chocolate…

(update: just found a perfect one!)

It’s just another day, another Hallmark holiday, another opportunity. I was thinking I was starting to get excited about it since Adam likes it, but now I’m more in neutral. Maybe next year when I can run around on my own I’ll have more feelings towards love’s out of the closet day.
