Ta-da!

The big day is finally here, it is finally the fourteenth of February.

Happy Valentines Day!

For a blog that is full of love, today is a special day near and dear to my heart. It may not be my favorite day yet, but it is a day full of love which can’t be too bad. I fully enjoyed the chocolate I got from my nutrition professor, it was dark chocolate so it’s better for you, and the cute valentines day cards I got from my sorority sisters.  Our postal service isn’t very good though, so with it already being awful and the snow I couldn’t get my mom’s package. Twenty years later and my mom is still the best valentine!

Personally, I am a huge fan of the romantic comedies where they have a bunch of really good actresses and actors and they have these separate story lines that all somehow connect in the end. That being said there just so happens to be a great movie like that centering around this happy holiday. Valentines Day the movie with Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Gardner, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, Patrick Dempsey, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Kathy Bates and Eric Dane. It’s crazy how many big romantic comedy legends are in the film.

The movie takes a look at all different types of love; young, old, engagements, cheating, unlikely couples, family, and the atmosphere of valentines day. I love all of the story lines partially because they all have some type of happy ending. Even if Jessica Alba does leave Ashton Kutcher on the day he proposed, at least he gets to kiss Jennifer Gardner. A movie about Valentines Day shouldn’t ignore the ugly, but it should have a happy ending. Today is the day to watch great sappy love stories, it can’t end too sad. This movie is a must for today, if you don’t have it rent it.

I’m not the biggest supporter of today, mainly because I don’t have a valentine. But, I did receive really uplifting texts from friends and family today. Sure people will argue today is a made up holiday that the card companies use to make money and that it is solely a capitalistic venture, but I have to argue with that. So what if it is all about capitalist and money? What is so wrong about celebrating love for one day? Although I agree when people say it shouldn’t be just one day, but isn’t one day to be a sappy, happy person a good thing? I loved making a valentine for my friends and seeing the smile on their faces. It feels good to feel loved. It isn’t singles awareness day, it’s a great day to tell the people in your life just how much they mean to you.

All people should embrace the day, and walk into it with a smile. Wear pink or red, say Happy Valentines Day to total strangers, buy that three dollar rose they are selling in the student center for a friend. You don’t have to make a card or buy into the capitalism of the day, just enjoy the time to tell the people you love that you love them. Someone loves you, and you love someone (even if it’s just your parents) and that is worth celebrating. So be a bright ball of sunshine today and smile in the face of those who snarl at you. Oh, and eat lots of chocolate too!

Have a lovely Valentines Day.

Love, Lindsey
