Happy Valentine’s Day – Daily Quote

all-you-need-is-love.-but-a-little-chocolate-now-and-then-doesnt-hurt.-charles-m.-schulz

My errands yesterday included a stop at the drugstore. The parking lot was overflowing as customers see-sawed and jockeyed for the spot closest to the entrance. I saw the chaos before committing to my turn, and instead, I kept driving.  It was then I realized the date. The day before Valentine’s Day is the busiest last-minute, chocolate heart buying, sappy card purchasing, and overpriced frantic flower shopping crowds crammed into the local connivance store time of the year. No, thank you.

There are many reasons to adore Valentine’s Day. There might be a couple things to hate, but in today’s love-filled spirit, we won’t go there. Besides, I am all about the chocolate. They say dark chocolate is nutritious, packed with minerals and antioxidants. Studies suggest it may promote blood flow, control blood pressure, help with cholesterol levels, lower the risk of heart disease, and improve brain function. Those are the facts I repeat when I must defend my chocolate drawer. Yep, I have a space dedicated to a secret stash that feeds my daily one piece of chocolate indulgence.

I love anticipating the Valentine’s Day aftermath. Tomorrow the chain store mobs will be non-existent, and they will drastically reduce the price of my favorite dark delights because of the large heart-shaped box. I hope it fits in my drawer.

What is your favorite part of Valentine’s Day?

  1. The chocolate of course! My story on my blog today was how we celebrated valentines day after the 2 week long lunar New year festivity. I think it’s a community celebration not just for the individual.

  3. I think I like being older so I can appreciate the child things about Valentine’s–the simple, silly card, the small box of Whitman Sampler’s; the hearts that have tiny messages on them. My mother would make a heart-shaped, two-layer cake, white cake with pink frosting. I wouldn’t mind having that now.

    Today I’m thinking about love in various forms. Writing about the kind of love that might last.

    Friend Jo, Have a pleasant Valentine’s Day!
