Happy Love Day!



Today is Valentine's Day.  I don't "do" Valentine's Day because I consider it just another money making event for businesses, which is all fine and well but I choose not to participate.  

However I do believe in love, not just on February 14th but every day of the year.  So to all of my friends and followers and even the stray person who happened to stumble on my humble blog my wish for you today and every day the rest of the year is much love and happiness to you all.

So, instead of one of those outrageously expensive Valentine's Day cards, I made up my own little World Cloud card a few minutes ago that I would like to share with all of you.  

Have a great day!

  1. I so agree with you Ron! All those holidays are "big business".
    You are our Valentine all year long! To Bill and you, have a wonderful day!

    1. Nadege,

      I'm all for business but I choose not to participate in this one, spending $5 and up for a card. I could buy a whole rotisserie chicken with that fiver.

      A wonderful day to you too Nadege! Always good to hear from you.

  2. Yeah, I don't need Hallmark or 1-800-Flowers or Russel & Stover to tell me when to tell Carlos I love him.
    I do that every day.

    1. Same here Bob, I don't need a business to tell me when to tell someone I love them. It's like Christmas, I love the holidays but years ago I decided to forgo the gift thing. If I want to buy somebody I like a gift, I do it when the mood and opportunity hits me, I don't wait for Christmas. I've never regretted it and haven't lost any friends because I stopped the Christmas gift giving thing.

  4. True love is not a one-day affair. I wish more people would choose not to "do" Valentine's Day. I'd like to put the rampant commercialization out of business.

    1. We are in agreement Jon! I too would like to put "rampant commercialization out of business." Next up, St. Patrick's Day.

    1. Thanks Mark! My homemade card that took about a minute and a half to make. I just put whatever words that came to my mind that spoke for my relationship with Bill. Plain and simple. Nothing fancy.

  7. Ron, I can't stand the commercialism associated with most of our holidays now. I've been saying for years that Valentines Day was manufactured so that husbands and boyfriends have yet one more opportunity to feel crappy and inadequate.

    1. You're right Sean! What did you get your wife for Valentine's Day?

    2. Ron: We played it low-key we didn't actually buy that much for each other, unless you count awesome homemade truffles and chocolates from a few locally owned candy shops. We went out for a nice dinner last Saturday, just us grown-ups.
