Valentine’s Day has never been my favorite holiday. In my opinion it’s a lot of hype, expensive and, no matter what, you end up feeling envious of those rose-holding, diamond-dripping gals around you…or worse, on Facebook. Hostile? Well, when you were once dumped publicly through a “roses are red, violets are blue” poem, I feel it’s respectable to be scarred for life. Can you blame me? Aside from the Hallmark of it all and my hatred for red roses (Mike once learned that the hard way, in my defense I was PMSing…), this year has hit me harder than most in terms of how freakin’ lucky I am. That’s why, I’d like to get a little sappy for a second to thank my devoted (and honest!) food tester, encouraging workout pal, fellow sushi lover and favorite commuting buddy for all his love these past five years. Yes, I know I just rambled about how I despise February 14th but I can’t help myself right now. Together Mike and I have shared important milestones like graduations, proms, first apartments and holidays, supporting one another along the way to follow our dreams. I honestly couldn’t tell you where I’d be right now without this guy. Love ya, Schmoop!
Gosh, he’s such a trooper with me constantly snapping shots of him mid-chew. To go along with my sentimental (borderline sickening…) blabbering, I figured I’d share with you my ten favorite love songs. Add in some John Mayer and Michael Bublé and you’ve got yourself a winner. Hey, who knows…these might come in handy later on?
