Lavender on Valentine's


Ah, its Valentines day, isnt it? You know, Ive never been a big fan of it. Reasons varied over time. Many years I was in relationship(s) involving little sincere affection, and other years Id just happen to find myself single each February 14th. Im sure many of you have been there, done that and bought the T-shirt.

Oh! Blah! Blah! Blah! You all know Im quite cynical when it comes to Popular Culture and Social Norms, its just the way I am!

Which is not to say, that IF The Most DH arrived home from work with flowers or chocolate, that I would be cross with him. Au contraire, mon Écouter!

But there is always chocolate in our pantry, and the flowers in our garden smell sweeter than any florist's.

Nothing out of the ordinary needs be done today, since we love each other so well every day. We make it a point to, as it took us such a very long time to find one another.

We hope you find yours too. There really is someone for everyone out there. Be good to yourself!

Hiya Lavender. I used to be the most devoted hater of valentines day Until I married my American who spoils me rotten with froofy gawdy stuffed toys, expensive jewelry, chocolates and hand written cards...needless to say, I am a convert. p.s this year i made him swear not to do anything because times are tough and he agreed but I sure do miss the fancy chocolates. Have a good one.
cheers

I don't know what to make of these popular culture holidays sometimes because merchants always take advantage of them. However, if my husband, one Valentine's Day came home with a diamond ring or another pearl necklace, I might just greet him with the sweetest Happy Valentine's Day declaration! Laveneder is special on any day! My favorite bath scent is lavender!
