Valentine’s Day

17 02 2011

I have always loved Valentine’s Day.

I don’t go on dates. I don’t feel like that’s what it’s about.

I think Valentine’s Day is about being around people you love. My mom always used to make a big dinner and decorate the table all fancy and give little gifts. It was always super exciting.

And then in school we’d exchange cards and have parties and it would just be a really fun day.

In college I was faced with everybody else’s view of Valentine’s Day. As in, date central. Like it was awful if you aren’t with somebody. A time to get depressed if you’re single.

But this year, I am a kindergarten teacher.

And I got to experience Valentine’s Day like a kindergartener again.

And it was awesome.
