Happy Valentine's Day

42 honest Valentine's cards.
Today is Valentine's Day.
I know that holidays like this are polarizing for a lot of people, and society is staunchly divided between those that love this day, and those that hate it.

I am one of the ones that loves it.

I like that there is an entire day devoted to being overly sentimental and mushy and telling everyone you love that you love them, and giving them cheesy little gifts that you would never give them for any other holiday, but they make you both smile and laugh and it's a damn good time.
Also red is my favorite color and on Valentine's Day you can drink champagne at any time, and for any reason.

It doesn't matter if you're single.
Or separated from the one you love.
Or if you have a lot of cats.
You don't have to make fancy dinner reservations, or plan a big trip.
Flowers and heart shaped chocolates aren't required.

Just tell the people you love that you love them, whoever and wherever they are, in a way they'll understand, in a way that will mean something to the two of you.

And if some fucking crazy how there is no one on this planet that you love, buy yourself a bottle of champagne and celebrate alone.
{and then tomorrow take a serious look at your life, because who the fuck doesn't love anybody?!}

Embrace the cheesy, because you only live once, and I love cheese.

Happy Valentine's Day.
