Most people associate the color red with Valentine's Day since it's so bold and romantic. But since I've never really celebrated Valentine's Day with 'sensual intentions' (and also since the color red owns less than 5% of the real estate in my wardrobe) I decided to wear my favorite color today instead- baby pink! Subtle pastels are cute and cuddly, which is what V-day is ALL about in my book. Every year, my family celebrates by reminding each other how much the love in our family unit means to each of us. Boyfriends and crushes are just sweet but secondary novelties... kinda like conversation hearts! People who complain that Valentine's Day is merely an opportunity for single people to feel even worse about themselves completely forget about all the other kinds of love that exist in our world: love for friends, love for pets, love for family members, colleagues, TV shows, musicians, Reeses cups, and Sprite cans. There is so much MORE to be celebrated than romance!

I couldn't be more delighted by her attention to detail... check out what else she has in stock. There's a heart top in practically every color!)

I love each and every one of my readers (especially the lovely bunch that leaves me comments!) and I'm so grateful to be celebrating what I like to call "Zevalentine's Day" with you guys. My version of the holiday entails finding the good in everyone and falling passionately in love with it. No exceptions. Except for people who are pure evil, AKA anyone who throws away their uneaten pizza crust without offering it to me first. Kidding! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!! Have a warm and wonderful Zevalentine's celebration.
Everything is infinite,
