I heart february

I'm pretty sure I have always loved Valentines day, even though I rarely had a Valentine. I think I had my first true Valentine after I had been in college for a couple of years. Never did I ever feel bitter really that I can recall {thankfully} either. I think it stems from my wonderful mother who always made Valentine's Day simply about showing love to those you love.

In my home my mom packed us school lunches with sweet notes and a special Valentine treat. And for dinner, we could always count on a super yummy meal with gifts awaiting us afterwards. The earliest gift I remember was the Dr. Suess book, Green Eggs and Ham.

It was the first book I read myself (memorized first really) and may just still be my favorite Dr. Seuss book (who am I kidding, I don't think I really can choose a favorite Seuss... maybe a top five is more realistic).

How can you not like a holiday that is centered around pink, red, hearts, flowers, and CHOCOLATE?!?! I suppose there are ways, but I say, ENJOY IT!!!
