Lovers Gonna Love

Can’t see the haters with my love glasses on.

Valentine’s Day has to be the most dissed holiday on the calendar!

The complaints of overpriced dinners are endless. The push or maybe shove from Hallmark to dazzle your lover with an expensive piece of paper have people bitching up a storm; and suddenly roses are the most hideous flowers, beating out a damn dandelion! Oh, haters gonna hate.

Do you really need to hire the writers at Hallmark to express how you feel? Paper, pens and personalization are priceless.

How about takeout, Netflix and daisies? If Love is already in the air this is all you need.

It doesn’t have to be difficult, just tweak your approach. Love should be spontaneous, simple and special.

Love also comes in all shapes and sizes. Some of my Fellow Bloggers Susannah & Susie shared wonderful examples of how simple gestures of kindness can keep the love going long after the 14th of February. Lovers gonna Love!

The world certainly has enough hate going on without throwing Cupid under the bus today. So get your creative juices flowing and do something to make someone else smile today. I would be beaming if someone else cleaned the bathroom, but that’s me. 

My daughter is smiling at college with her Panera gift card. My son is shocked by his extra gas money. The hubby is beaming with the site of a little chocolate cake with his morning joe and Peanut and Landon are on top of the world with their new toys. Knowing that these thoughtful gestures made the ones I love happy is all I need. (But if someone wants to clean the bathroom that would be great too)

Today isn’t just Valentine’s Day for me, it’s my Anniversary … which makes it extra special for us. Love squared!  We will be heading out to enjoy an overpriced dinner this evening, but more importantly each others company. Time to ourselves is priceless these days. 

All you need is Love to Enjoy the Ride …. It’s Easy!

(But if someone wants to clean the bathroom that would be great too) MY FAVORITE PARAGRAPH…SO GREAT…THANKS FOR THE ALERT 🙂

    1. Any time friend! Your story stuck with me all day yesterday!

      1. Awe…I’m touched and have been paying it forward, backwards, over my head…all day…bravo Susie..bravo Top 🙂

  3. You hit the nail on this one! It’s not about the usual but more about personalizing the day for those you love.

  4. Fantastic! We all should Share the Love today and every day!
    Thanks for the shout. 🙂

  5. Happy Anniversary! 🙂
    There are a lot of us who don’t need the commercialised mass produced profit making drivel on a particular day. We’ve got the REAL stuff!! 😀

  6. Happy anniversary! Today was my parent’s anniversary too and I always thought that it was so romantic of them to choose this day to get married (just three months after meeting and just before my father headed off to war). I, too, would love someone to clean my bathroom but I’d “settle” for chocolate.

    1. How about eating chocolate while we watch them clean … 50 Shades has nothing on that scene!

  7. I don’t dislike the idea of Valentine’s Day. I just have grown tired of its commercialization and high expectations.

    1. High expectations always ruin the party! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your boy crew!

  8. Oh…and happy anniversary!!!

  9. Happy Anniversary! Enjoy the dinner, enjoy the ride! Lololol😜😜😜

  10. Wonderful! Happy Anniversary/V-Day. But I won’t be cleaning your bathroom.

  11. In the words of the great Eddie Murphy doing Buckwheat sings, you went “wookin pa nub” and you found it. “Otay.” Happy anniversary.

  12. Celebrating love on only one day is as silly as giving thanks on another (unless it’s your anniversary).

  13. Happy Anniversary! I’m with you on the cleaning of the bathroom. Seriously, someone needs to pants Cupid.

  14. Hope you enjoyed your anniversary!
