Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day–probably because up until last year, I was always single on February 14th. Anyway, surprise surprise, not much has changed just because I’m part of a couple.

I truly hope no one out there is sad or depressed about being alone on today or any other day, because you’re not alone. Really.

And besides, it could be worse:

Seriously though, that’s all kinds of cute, isn’t it? Thanks to John for pointing it out.

Happy Valentine’s Day one and all!

11 Beans of Wisdom to “Happy Valentine’s Day!”
  1. The (Mis)Adventures of a Single City Chick

    I saw that on the news recently! Pretty touching if you think about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ That fits right up there with my own personal mantra…”if I’m going to die, I’m taking someone with me.” LOL!


  2. tongue in cheek

    I hope today makes up for all the valentines of the past!

  3. Cherrye

    It is too cute…in a morbidly sad kinda way.

    I am with on V-Day…It just ain’t my thing.

  4. Giulia

    Valentine’s Day is such an over commercialized holiday. Why do so many people obsess so much over it…BOH?
    I have been feeling under the weather the last couple days, so when hubby cooked dinner and cleaned up last night, it was enough of a Valentine’s gift for me! (^-^)
    Flowers wilt and chocolates go straight to my a$$.

    I have to agree with cherrye; that photograph of the skeletons
    is cute in a morbidly sad way.

    Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!

  5. Judith in Umbria

    Being with the wrong person, any day, is much worse than being with no one on Valentine’s day. Trust me.

  6. sognatrice

    Christina, I love your mantra!

    Tongue in Cheek, thanks for the wishes. I had a lovely evening full of 5-year-olds and P’s family…post likely forthcoming ๐Ÿ™‚

    Giulia, I completely agree with you on what’s romantic on this or any other day.

    And yes, Cherrye, it’s kind of morbid, but, hey, doesn’t Valentine’s need some of that to balance all the fluff?

    Judith, you’re so right. As always ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. nyc/caribbean ragazza

    I saw that story too and thought it was sweet. Amore. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. J.Doe

    I hope you had a nice Valentines day.

  9. Karla

    holy crap…i posted the same picture on my blog as well.

    great minds think alike….

    I also used it on the v-d card to my husband, hehe. The slogan? “We’re not dead yet so live it up!”

  10. The Other Girl

    Aw, dead people in love.

  11. Mia

    Didn’t they say these were two men? Makes it sweeter.
