Thoughts on Valentine's Day

I've always said "Valentine's Day isn't my thing"... "Nah, it's not important to me."
& You know, that might be true if everyone else in the world weren't being given flowers and candy. They're getting flowers and candy? I want flowers and candy too!

I remember feeling really bad Valentine's day of my Senior year b/c 2 guys(who I wasn't dating and not planning on dating) brought me flowers and stuffed animals. To this day
I still don't understand why! I felt so awful not having anything for them though. Ick, it still bugs me. I think you should have to ask someone to be your Valentine to prepare them! I hate not having a gift to give in return!

Every year of elementary school (k-3rd) I was sick on Valentine's day. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. Never failed. I always missed out on passing out Valentine's, and receiving mine. My Mom would have to go to school to drop mine off for me. Mostly, this upset me because my Mom always had the best Valentine outfit for me to wear & I ended up wearing it while laying on the couch.

One of my exes once bought me a REALLY nice necklace that i adored for Valentine's one year & then the next year he gave me a card. Uhmmm, what? I mean, it wouldn't have been weird if he had given me only a card the first year. He could have at least sprung for some flowers. You can't down grade that much, sheesh!

I used to not care for red roses. They seemed cliche' to me. Now I realize I should just be happy with what I've been given! haha

One Valentine's day there were 2 signs nailed to the tree at the end of my road that read "I still love you" & "Always will." There were only 3 girls who lived on the road that it possibly could have been for. None of us ever figured out who it was, but whew...
it was sweet.

I really love y'all. Thank you so much for hangin' around these parts & showing me so much love! Will you be my Valentine?

  10. I'm all yours, Lace! Happy Valentine's Day!

  11. Awww, so sweet! I will be your Valentine! Such a great blog and such a great writer! :) Hope you have a good Valentines day this year!

  12. Happy Valentines Weekend. You make me smile!

  13. Happy early Valentine's Day, Lacey. I hope you survived the Saints' parade and the post-Super Bowl celebration. I'm sure it was a fun week on Bourbon Street!

  14. I've always said Valentine's Day wasn't for me, too!

    And then my friend's husband said that if I met the right person it would be...

    I'm still a skeptic...

  15. I relate to #2! My freshman year of college, a guy from my high school sent roses to my dorm completely out of the blue. I still cringe when I think about it because he was sweet but SO not someone I was interested in and I felt really bad! Love the tree signs story. Hope your V-Day has been wonderful this year! XOXO

  16. Happy Valentine's Day to you! I hope yours was a good one.

  17. So cute, Lace. WHat did you do this year? Anyhoo, I'm not big on red roses too. For roses, I like white ones better :p

  18. It's a day that can really suck big, old boogers if you're single, yet surrounded by those who are not.

    I feel you on that.

    I hope you had a good day anyway and I think you are just straight up pleasant!


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
