LOVE! February 14, 2007

Valentine's Day, for me, is not that big a deal. In fact, this one kind of slipped me by. Yesterday I was driving around and noticed the impromptu flower stands that pop up around any Hallmark holiday -- vendors hawking their bouquets to cars idling in traffic, caught at stop signs. I wondered, "Huh?" Then I realized that it was the Big Day of Love in consumerland.

But really? Love is good stuff. Love is good stuff every single day, and I don't need a special day to remember that. I'm lucky enough to remember that all the time, as often as possible. Today I won't see Lala at all, actually. I left for work at 5am (she won't be home until after I'm asleep tonight), and as I kissed her goodbye, I said, "I love you," as I do every morning. Usually she doesn't wake up at all, just kind makes a sound that could be translated as "sheep" in some languages, but today, she kicked her feet and yelled "I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUU!" And I'm sure she doesn't remember that a bit.

Heh. She's totally gonna be embarrassed by that little story. That makes it more fun! Now, THAT'S Valentine's day. She can share embarrassing stories on her own blog (only she doesn't, luckily, not often), and all I can say now is:

Love is good stuff. No matter where you get it.

So cute. Happy VD to you.

Sheep = love, or so I hear.

I like how your post names have become single nouns lately... Muffins, Uke, Love.

I love you, man!

I so completely agree :)

Yep. Love is the everyday sweetness.

Yes...yes it is. I spent my Valentine's night with my bestest friend painting a softball dugout red. If that doesn't scream Valentine's, I don't know what does.

W. :)

And don't you gals look as happy as little beans.

Best "in love" pictures I've seen in a long time.

The hubby and are I have a dinner out tonight, avoiding the rush.
In a few days we are off on family hoilday, thats what I love.

That's hilarious. I love sleepy outbursts in general, but a Valentine's Day-specific outburst is even better! The photo is great, too. xoxo

That is a most hilarious picture... delovely.

Dude. Love is awesome.

Awww, you got that right. Amen, sister.

I love that picture.
Thank you for tonight.
I love you.
