So I realized I totally missed that essential Valentines Day post. You know the one, where every blogger on here writes about love and the special meaning it has, and how lucky they are to be loved, or how they are waiting for their Prince Charming...yeah, that one.
I must confess I totally forgot it was Valentines Day. Not very feminine of me, I know, but our whole family has been sick, so we haven't been feeling like celebrating..or eating tons of chocolate, as sad as that is to say.
Besides, Valentines has never been a very important holiday to me anyway...and that's not just because I don't have a boyfriend.
All the red and white and lace and teddy bears never really struck a chord with me. I like holidays like Christmas alot better, because they are so much more meaningful.
Valentines day, with it's chocolate, little puppies on cheap cards, that generic box of chocolates, and the slightly nauseating dyed pink carnations never meant that much to me.
Okay, maybe I'm missing the "deeper meaning"--i mean it's a whole holiday to celebrate love!
Even that doesn't move me. Why should there be a special holiday for love? We should be showing our love for each other every day, not just on February 14th. But I know alot of people like it and find it really special and meaningful...I just don't, really, and that's just me;)
Of course I have more to talk about than simply venting about the uselessness of Valentines day, don't I?
Of course I do. I'm sure I had a topic all planned out...I must have simply lost it in the woods because theat's where I have been all afternoon for the past few days.
You would not believe what I am wearing right now. Shorts. and a tank top. In Febrauary.
It's totally awesome, totally warm, and I am totally gettting a head start on tanning:)
I mean, life has been pretty sweet so far, just doing school, got over my sickness, and being outside...it's just been normal life, well as normal as life with me can ever be:)
And I really do love my life. Sometimes I complain, but really, what do I have to complain about? I have an awesome family with amazing christian parents, amazingly supportive and hilarious friends, both guy and girl, and a whole bunch of woods at my disposal...that is a recipe for one very happy Ari.
Since I don't have a huge amount of drama in my life to write inspiring sermons about...or pictures to dazzle you with..I shall sweeten your ears with music. Enjoy! :)
