Happy Valentine's Day, Blog friends!

I know loads of people look down on this day with  hatred, deeming it as nothing more than holiday of consumerism. While I totally agree that too many stores want to push over-priced & useless crap in your face, I think that it is fine and dandy to be a sappy human being and embrace a "no cash value" part  Valentines Day.

I challenge you to embrace today. Not as a day of grossly inappropriate sex-crazed couples , but as a day love for your fellow man. Love is great because it comes in all levels, and taking a moment to recognize that you love another person should not have to be looked down upon -- even if the love exchanged is purely platonic. It reminds us that even in this big universe of confusion and constant change, we are not alone; We have each other. There's no shame in that. I love my family. I love my friends. I love my dog. I love yarn. I love crafting!

So, there it is. I love you reader, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

 P.S - Stay tuned because I am making a cake today, and in the next few days I will be posting a recipe for a S U P E R  easy home made butter cream frosting. So easy, it will make your head spin! (Not really, no one wants a spinning head. I've had the spins before, and all it lead to was puking, and no one wants that either. Why am I rambling about puke? Wasn't this supposed to be a nice post? I think I need to stop now before I make us both grossed out.)
