A lot of people hate on Valentine’s Day. “It’s too commercial,” they say. Or, “the holiday is just another way for greeting card and chocolate companies to make more money.” “You should be showing the people you love how much you love them every day, not just on one day,” is another popular phrased used to hate on this holiday.
All of those things are true. And I totally get hating Valentine’s Day. Really, I do.
But, here’s the thing…what’s wrong with another reason to celebrate love? You should without a doubt be loving on those you care about each and every single day. Don’t ever stop. But I will never get tired of love, and I will take any excuse to make a big deal out of it. I’m a wedding photographer, for crying out loud! I made love my business and my world is better because it exists.
The other thing that makes my world better? My husband. He’s my best friend, my lover, my comic relief, my confidant, my co-adventurer. My everything.
Chris, today and every day, I love you with every beat this heart of mine can muster. And I’ll love you even after it can beat no more. Happy Valentine’s Day, my love.
Happy Valentine’s Day, to you and whoever it is that makes your world better.
