. . . if I don't like hearts?
(I also don't like butterflies but that is for another post.)
If you are a heart lover, I commend you. You are a true romantic.
Most of the time, if something has a heart on it, I pass it by (and honestly? cringe a little).
I think my lack of enthusiasm for hearts stems from my 'country' phase when absolutely everything had a heart on it, a heart carved in it, hearts stamped on it or sported heart cutouts. Hearts were on my walls, pillows, curtains and clothes. I'm shuddering just thinking about hearts.
But . . .
Miss Maggie's House was open last weekend and I, in all my holiday wisdom, thought there should be a little nod to Valentine's Day.
So I cut out hearts.
Put them on a burlap banner.
Sewed up little cards.
Punched them out of dictionary pages.
I also stuck romantic flash cards everywhere to remind shoppers that come the 14th, they needed to be romantic themselves.
I've discovered that I'm not the only one who doesn't care for hearts.
Nothing with a heart on it sold!
Is Valentine's Day outdated? Do you love it or dread it?
I think I can be romantic without the hearts.
Tomorrow I am making my main man homemade vegetable soup. He tells me he could eat soup everyday but we very seldom have soup.
Because I don't love soup like he does.
But I love him. So on Valentine's Day we are having soup.
Maybe I'll cut the potatoes into hearts.
Happy Heart Day Everyone!
