To Love or Not to Love

It seems that it's impossible to get away from Valentine's Day this time of year. The pink and red hearts are everywhere and you can't help but think your relationships or lack there-of. I've been on both sides of the spectrum. Some years I find myself completely giddy over the cuteness of the holiday and the excuse to make fun cupcakes. Other years I have been sad and bitter because everyone else I knew was out celebrating and I had to spend Valentine's Day feeling like I was the only person in the world who was alone. Pretty dramatic right? I completely believe that this is a corporate holiday that stores use to up their sales after the slow month of January. But I also believe it's a good excuse to step back and admire the people that you love (whether that be your significant other, your family, or your dearest friends) and make sure they know it. Because, while I wish that I did things like that every day, life gets crazy sometimes and I don't show my loved ones the appreciation that they deserve. I really need to work on that.

Here's a little table of Valentine's Day sweetness for anyone who needs it:

...Because who doesn't love a frilly pink cupcake?
