Happy Sweetest Day 2007.

It’s that day again! The day the flower sellers/card makers came up with so they could have Valentines Day twice a year! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it helps to keep them in business and gives the men a reminder that they should do a little something to make their wives happy even if that involves killing flowers and buying candy.

I managed to bat 300 this year with the traditional flowers/candy combo with a nice set of deep red roses and some extra special dark chocolate candies and the perfect card. Despite being very sentimental I’m not a very good romantic, but I am slowly learning why such gestures are so important and I definitely understand the benefit they bring me. It’s the sort of thing I try to remember to do every so often on days that aren’t designated by the flower/candy/card industries, but I’ve not quite mastered that yet so despite the obvious commercialism of the day it’s good for me to have that kind of a reminder.

Here’s hoping you managed to do as well with your significant others, assuming you have one in the first place.

  1. It’s really difficult to read this while a zombie is staring at me, but Yeah, some dark chocolate can bring on real sentimental feelings.
    that and checking the tires on my bicycle…..

    Happy Sweetest Day to you and the missus smile

    If you try to be someone you’re not for too long, it might begin to strain on you, and the mind is just not able to falsify indefinitely

    I don’t even bother to falsify emotion because, really, need it be important to the other person? If they don’t like it, they should learn to live with it + get some backbone (sorry if it sounded harsh), because it’s not fair to restrict someone with your own emotions.

    That said, who am I to refuse the love of anyone?

  3. SEB is definitely more sentimental than me.  I don’t cry at movies (or after finishing a tragic book passage).  Our kiddo, is especially emotional when it comes to books and movies.  However, I do tend to be more “romantic” in the moment.

    SEB definitely gets BIG KUDOS for the roses and dark chocolate.  He did surprise me! The card came at a time when I really needed to hear those perfect words.  The card was “perfect” and it made my day, week, month…. year.

    I believe SEB has grown as a person, huband, father over the past several years.  Time changes everything… Experience changes us as well… It is inevitable that humans change (grow) over time. Most importantly, I love him more now than ever before with or without his growing “romatic” skills.
