Simple & memorable.

Year after year, there are people who simply despise Valentines day. My words of wisdom to them: toughen up. If you don't have a hubby, boyffie, or a special someone, turn to your best friend or family. I miss the elementary days when we made Valentine holders out of construction paper and an excess of Elmer's Glue, and every person in the classroom brought cartoon cardboard Valentines to distribute to everyone in the class. *sigh*

Valentine's Day Memory #1:
I remember in Kindergarten, my forever best guy friend, Gary, gave me an X-Men Valentine's Day card with the words "I only have eyes for you." As I recall I was upset with him for drinking my chocolate milk that day, so I stomped right up to him, where he was conveniently standing next to a trash can, raised the valentine to his face, and ripped it into pieces letting the tiny pieces fall gracefully to their final resting place... a little harsh. You will be relieved and surprised to know, that him and I are still very close friends.

Valentine's Day Memory #2:
Last year today, my boyfriend and I decided to have an ever so romantic dinner at Chipotle, followed by a late walk in the west village. Destination: Magnolia Bakery. A couple cupcakes and glasses of milk later, strolling down the streets we passed Samantha Ronson and friend. This was the night of the infamous Lohan-Ronson fall out at Charlotte Ronson's fashion show after party... which explained her sans Lindsay. Earlier that day, I also bought a breath taking pair of Valentino peep toe booties. Very memorable, indeed.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, boyfriend, husband, or best friend, Valentine's day is all what you make it. At the end of the day, spontaneous and unexpected events just might make it memorable. Xx! Happy weekend to you.


  1. I feel the same way! You gotta make the most of every day of life, married, dating, or single!

  2. This is so true! Have a great Valentine's Day!
