Today on Valentine's Day we're all linking up with Kristina over at PrettyShinySparkly for another one of her Bloggers Do It Better challenges. This is the second one that I've participated it and its always so fun to see what everyone come up with.

I have to say I generally don't care for Valentine's Day. It seems silly to focus so much attention and effort on showing someone you love them on ONE day out of the year.
Most of my IRL friends will tell you that I'm bitter. They're right. In happier (younger) days I was delighted to recieve a dozen red and white roses at church on V-Day weekend. Or in college when I recieved a V-Day package from my best friend. (Who I was pretty much in love with.) But yes...these days...I'm a little bitter.
This year my Valentine's Day attention will be focused on Boomer, and the ridiculousness that is V-Day at school. At least in kindergarten its not a popularity contest yet. Because you know once they start doing the flower fundraiser in middle and highschool it totally is.
I've also been disturbed and worried lately about the disconnect I feel with a lot of my friends. We don't see each other but we live in the same city. Or my out of town friends that I just don't talk with like I used to. I remember sitting in the loop between Thatcher and Talge Hall promising Kas that we'd never drift apart. And we have. I know its part of life, but it still makes me sad.
So today, I'm writing letters and reconnecting with my friends and loved ones. Its so fun to send and receive mail. So be on the lookout.
I'm also wearing my favorite red lipstick which you last saw in this post. Make Up Forever in Moulin Rouge.
Of course I have to give a special shout-out to my photographer and Valentine.....BOOMER!!!!
She is soooooo much fun. Even if she does cut off Mommy's head in a lot of shots.
