I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day.... after all the origin of the day is as a Catholic feast day related to a martyr of 3rd century Rome. It has always seemed contrived and forced to me to have a day associated with love. I prefer anniversaries and spontaneous expressions of adoration over a random Thursday in February. That, and working around lots of college students means being around a lot of young people sulking without a date (as one student put it yesterday- singles awareness day).
Having said that, I will pretty much take any excuse to eat some chocolates, especially when they are the Christopher Elbow variety that Joe brought home today. Such beautiful, perfect, tasty creations!
Happy Valentine's Day!!
