happy LOVE day

posted on: Tuesday, February 14, 2012

it's Valentine's Day boys and girls.
a day to celebrate LOVE
and those we share it with.
sounds delightful, no?

or not.
most of my life, 
i managed to be out of a relationship right around this blessed holiday
some of my friends more aptly referred to it as
"single awareness day"

even now that i'm married
and more in love than ever
sometimes V-day is less than dreamy.
"it's a Hallmark holiday", sayeth the husband,
as he refuses to acknowledge its meaning
and thus,
we have spent many a Valentine's day
fighting.

so if you're in the same boat
here's a less-than-sappy song
two versions of it, in fact.
and i can't decide which one i like better

the original?

or the cover?

his voice is so haunting
but i love watching Ingrid sing
and the way she plays all those instruments?

i just can't decide.
can you?

happy LOVE day.
if no one has told you yet that they love you today,
i do.

  1. I live in the UK and this song is at Number One at the moment in the Top 40 Chart - my friend in Australia really doesn't like this song - he says the video gives him the creeps lol.

    There is another version of the song with liek 5 people gathered round one guitar - it's really good - you should take a look I think it's by Walk Off The Earth.

  2. : ) i don't get why people hate this holiday or choose not to celebrate (because you should be celebrating every day, blah blah blah). what's wrong with celebrating LOVE?! : )
    this holiday's great. even if you just love yourself.
