Valentine’s Day is a holiday I’ve always been fond of, even though I spent most of the first twenty years of my life single. I think of it kind of like Thanksgiving, but with chocolate and hearts instead of turkey.
We’ve chosen not to do much this year (or last year, for that matter, and most years before), and I don’t mind. I’m content to acknowledge it simply with an extra email or two, and this year Ember was able to reschedule a few things so that we can hang out online together tonight, watch some more House of Cards and maybe do some computer gaming. Catalyst is taking his wife, Dreamer, out to dinner, so we won’t really interact much tonight, but it’s okay. It’s just a day. I take anniversaries a lot more seriously anyway. :)
I admit though, that I’m looking forward to a time when it is worth the effort to celebrate Valentine’s Day, because it doesn’t take much effort when you live closer to the ones you love.
I hope that you either have a lovely Valentine’s Day, or simply a lovely Thursday!
