It wasn’t until I was at that age when boys no longer had cooties and a huge part of your social calendar could be filled with holding hands in movie theaters on first dates, that i started to feel a little blah about Valentine’s Day. Before that, I was the girl who brought every single person in the class a card and a piece of chocolate. The one who couldn’t wait for the day to come so she could wrap her arms around the people she loved the most, especially her family, and remind them that life would be nothing without them.
None of that has to change. It shouldn’t matter if you’re swapping saliva with the man of your dreams or sitting on the couch smooching a cupcake all alone. Valentine’s Day is coming up and since there’s no way to escape it – unless you hitch a ride on a space shuttle to Mars. You might as well embrace it.
I’ve teamed up with Uncommongoods.com to help you out.
