Hello and Happy Valentines Day.
You know, there's this guy that I work with that believes Valentines day is a woman's holiday. I don't agree with him and believe me, I did a pretty good job of voicing my opinion about how ridiculous I thought he sounded. To my surprise, with the exception of one man, it turns out that every other guy I asked on the job felt that the holiday was strictly for women, too. In my opinion, Valentines Day is celebrated all over the world and nowhere in history has it ever been noted that this romantic holiday was specifically for the ladies.
Okay, I'll be the first to admit that almost every box of chocolates is heart shaped, with lots of pink, red and pretty bows. And yes... I also know that my husband would probably have my head examined if I presented him with a dozen roses... BUT... I think that the guys are forgetting something here. What about when we give you breakfast in bed, or leave the hamburger helper on the shelf in the pantry and prepare one super amazing home cooked dinner just for y-o-u. Hey and what about the 124 cards that we read through carefully at the Hallmark store until we found the absolute perfect one... and let's not forget that backrub. So there, in my opinion, everything balances out. This holiday is to bring the 'couple' closer together... it's soooo not just for 'her.'
