Valentine's Day is coming!
In honor of this much-maligned, yet often much-loved holiday, I went last night to see the brand new movie of the same name:
This movie is exactly what you'd expect from "a day in the life of love." Tears, laughter, a little bit of heartbreak, and lots of hope. Not bad for a day that overdoes the pink, makes us all overdose on chocolate and communicative heart candies, and has been known to make some people feel pretty lonely sometimes.
My husband and I kind of make it up as we go along. This year, we think we might go out. But then again, we might stay in and watch a movie. It's kind of a win/win scenario because either way, we get to be together.
Which is kind of what the movie's about, too. Love makes its own rules. And you're better off for it, even if it hurts. And sometimes, it can be a miracle. Even a quiet one.
How do you feel about Valentine's Day? Do you have any traditions? Anti-traditions?
