Valentine's Day, Smalentine's Day!!! Well, what do you want me to say? Bahhumbug! Oh wait, that's for Christmas!!
Valentine's Day is synonymous for the Day of Lovers! A great big bundle of red hearts, chocolate candy, long stemmed red roses, and softy, fluffy cuddly teddy bears!!
Oh, and let's not forget the evening time undergarments for those late night escapades! We're all grown and we know what grown people do!
Y'all are probably wondering why I'm so anti-Valentine's Day...or perhaps not! Y'all probably think I've had my heart broken by some old romantic love! Well...no! That's not it! I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day! Not even when I had a boyfriend! Not even when I was married!
You read that correctly! Not even when I was married! You see, I've gotten the teddy bears, the chocolates, the candy, and the jewelry! Dinner! Movie! You name it!
I've engaged in the proverbial romantic dialogue but I am of the mindset that the day of love should be everyday! Not just celebrated or cherished on Valentine's Day!
This year, Valentine's Day will look much different! You see (here is a moment of truth and transparency), the day before Valentine's Day, my divorce will be final! I am not ecstatic about getting a divorce but I am happy for it to be final! This will be a day of peace and relaxation for me!
Don't get me wrong, I would like to have a bae to cuddle and kiss on, you like that Beyoncé song All Night--rub up, feel up, and kiss up on ya!!!
Yeah, that's nice but as for Valentine's Day, I'll be toasting up at a girls night out event! And I'll drink to that!! I'll be dreaming of my future! My dreams! My desires! My goals!!! Would you like to join me?
Tell me about your most memorable Valentine's Day, be it good, bad, ugly, or in between!
