Being My Own Valentine?

February 14th was, as you all undoubtedly know, Valentine’s Day. All day long while running errands I saw men hustling to buy flowers, candy, balloons, cute-and-cuddly stuffed animals, perfume and jewelry — and that’s really nice! A lot of women out there were going to get presents!! Yes! Here’s a thumbs-up to those masculine shoppers!

On the other hand, I knew without a solitary doubt that no such largesse was going to find its way into MY house, so I made a decision. I sent myself an on-line Valentine, put silk flowers in a vase on the table, and bought myself a bag of Hershey’s Kisses (see photo)!!! I told a friend I was going to lie about it, but…NAH!

It’s nice to be appreciated, even if you have to do it yourself!! 😉 She said was going to send herself flowers at work and refuse to tell anyone who they were from, and I hope she did.

Next year I think we’ll make a pact to send each other flowers and candy, and maybe involve another friend or two — sort of like a “Play It Forward” thing or a “chain Letter”. We can claim our sweet little gifts came from a “Secret Admirer”, from a “Stalker”, or (for a particular friend) from “Colin Firth”! LOLOL!










Happy Belated Valentine’s Day to ALL!!!
