Ah, the day before Valentine's. This has always been a somewhat melancholy holiday for me, and who can't say that at one point or another? But this year I'm trying to look at things a different way. I'm the girl who always wears all black all the time. Holidays, then, are a reason to bust out the color! The sparkle. The feminine mystique. And combat boots...
Don't get me wrong, I have a wonderful boyfriend whom I love dearly. There's just that generically bad feeling that I get when I think about valentines past. I suppose all the complaints I can list about Valentine's day have already been exhausted, so I won't bore you with them again here. However, there's something about embracing the world of color that has made the holiday more bearable. Fun, even. Valentine's day isn't about men and roses and jewelry. It's about red sparkles! Pink sequins! Floral prints and pouffy dresses. Now that's something that I can be excited about. And I do love sparkles. I also love my dog Sophie. So here's to all the things we love, be they human or not.
RIP Lee McQueen (1969 - 2010)
