Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers! I was lucky enough (and very honoured) to be asked to guest post on One Good Thing yesterday, as part of Wabi’s week-long tribute to love. I talked about love, and felt the love come right back at me. It was awesome.
Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of V-Day. In or out of a relationship, to me, it feels like a staged display of affection.

Why, because you chose not to follow the trend? Isn’t that a bit sad?
Personally, I’d much rather receive flowers (or chocolates, or jewellery, or shoes), because my man happened to be thinking about me, not because the whole world has dictated that if he’s doesn’t get me something he doesn’t love me. But hey, that’s just me.

Buut, if I ever was to get something this cute from a Valentine, I’d probably change my opinion:
