My Valentine's Day was exciting because I left the house for the first time in days, and because I got to see mah baby all grown up and saving China.*
I had been craving Starbucks (not to mention the outside world in general/shopping/buying basic human rights [blue conditioner]), PLUS the basically-brother, next-door-neighbor boy Sam got a job at the Starbucks nearby.
So crazy-proud of him (he was pretty much born to work there), and we wanted to visit. We walked in and he was all manning the drive-through like a boss. Took pictures before he even noticed we were there.
And then hung out with him while he was on his break and drinking his FREE drink.
But I didn't get a Valentine's Day cup (which was one of the reasons I needed to go to Starbucks in the first place, sheesh) so then we drove through to get one.
This cup is pretty much the best Valentine's Day thing this year--I love how it has the different kinds of love. Can we stop with the either/or of bitter singles complaining about the depression or the lovebirds sapping out about the happiness? Sure, it's for mushy stuff, too, but I think the day should be a day to celebrate, recognize, and be thankful for all kinds of love.
It's a good day to be grateful for all the different people in your life who you get to love/be loved by: the brothers and the sisters and the card-giving parents and pretty-much-family-members and the best-friends-forever and definitely, the husbands and fiances and super-special certain guys.
Last year, I said I could conquer the world with one red rose. This year, that ridiculously thoughtful brother of mine gave me two. Imagine the possibilities!
It was a good day. I got out of the house, I got Starbucks, I rediscovered this song, I bought post-it-notes and put them to use.
