So...Valentine's Day.

Well...another year of being single. Honestly though, I'm not upset about that. I am perfectly happy being single. In fact...just like last year:

I am a proud single girl. It's pretty nice to have no expectations for a day of "romance." Not to mention, I can pretty much count on still getting some chocolate from my parents. Because at least THEY love me! 

No, I'm kidding. I never cry about Valentine's Day. It's really not worth it. I do appreciate getting candy from my parents though. Because I love candy. So much.

Some people like to call Valentine's Day "Singles' Awareness Day" or other things like that, but I'm fine with calling it Valentine's Day, even though I don't have a Valentine per say. I'm not depressed about being single. I know there's someone out there for me. And, I know that whoever and wherever you are, as Michael Bublé would say..."I just haven't met you yet."

But uh...could he be my Valentine? Pretty please with sugar on top?
Also, image from here.
Today at work I got to spread the love by drawing little pink hearts on a whole slew of cups. That was fun. One customer even told me it looked really nice. That made me happy. Plus, as a nice Valentine's Day perk, I took home $12 in tips. Score!

So to everyone who has a special someone to share Valentine's Day (and every other day) with, happiest of Valentine's Days to you. I hope your day is full of candy and cards and flowers and dinners and romantic goodness. And to those of you who, like me, are single on a day all about love, Happy Valentine's Day to you too! Because I like spreading love around. It gives me warm fuzzies. And warm fuzzies are happy things. 

Now, please enjoy a homemade, lopsided Valentine from me to you. 


  1. Discount Candy is arguably the best thing about Valentine's day! I'm going to stock up on pounds of cinnamon hearts tomorrow. :D

    Which, by the way, can be ground up in a food processor and mixed into ice cream to make the BEST ICE CREAM FLAVOUR EVER.

    Try it! Your taste buds will thank me. =]

  2. Aw, thanks, Joanna! Happy Valentine's Day to you as well! :D


  3. Happy Valentine's Joanna! It's really refreshing to hear you having a good attitude about being single today. Good for you for having the confidence in love to know that someone is out there for you. It's important to think outside the "romantic" box and remember the ones you love- family, friends and all :)

  4. I'm 40 years old, single and loving it, though I have been married. It was good while it lasted, but it's best to find the right person even though it takes a little longer:)

  5. Hahah cute! Hearts are super hard to draw, in my opinion.

  6. I am falling in love with your drawings all over again.
    VERY cute. :))

    Check it out, please <3 :)

  7. You know what they day, "Young, free and single" :D I spent valentines day with my friends on my swim team at practice ;)

  8. I know you've been AWOL for quite some time now, but I'm popping in to let you know that we've granted you the Versatile Blogger Award on our blog! :D Congratulations!
