Remember When?

Remember when life was so much easier?  What about when we had few responsibilities other than finishing homework and feeding the dog?  Or when the entire afternoon could be spent jumping from swings and zooming down slides?  Sigh, oh how lovely it would be to live like a kid again...

Valentine's Day - It's Just a Hippie Holiday

Ahhh, Valentine's Day - it's the day that makes some flutter their eyes and pucker their lips to sounds of sweet compliments and proclamations of deepest adoration.  It's also the day where others pay homage to Bridget Jones (pre-Darcy, of course) by basking on their couch, robed in their cushy pajamas and accompanied only by a box of chocolate, a bottle of cheap wine, or both.  Although intended to connect us in love, Valentine's Day inadvertently divides us even further apart into a battle between hungry, yet proud singles and slightly obsessed couples in love.  Both teams bicker passionately about their support for or lack of the holiday in a campaign rivaling the election in both fervor and memes.  Even so, there is one commonality that unites us all on this holiday, making us no different from the other side - we are all just a bunch of hippies on Valentine's Day.
