Happy Valentine's Day To Those That Celebrate....

Personally I do not like Valentine's Day and I think it is a bullshit holiday. Every store you go to displays Valentine related stuff in your face. Advertisements, cards, treats, gifts and more offer promises of everlasting love.

I think my dislike for Valentine’s Day began many, many years ago in Elementary School. Each year the teacher would force all students to bring in a decorated shoe box for our Valentine’s Day party. Students would be given a list of names of every student in their class and were expected to make a Valentine to give to each one on the list. I would work hours to pick out the perfect little valentine card for each person. I was always so excited to give them out as school…only to be disappointed at peoples comments about my cards. Kids can say some really mean and hateful things. While I don’t remember the exact words, I do remember how much they hurt and how totally alone I always felt.

My dislike for Valentine's Day has gotten worse through the years thanks to worthless ex-boyfriends and an ex-husband. Maybe someday this stupid holiday will be wiped off the calendar.

Anyway, from Shelby and I ....

Shelby AKA The Bed Invader

Last Saturday, at bedtime, Shelby decided to invade my bed.
So I took the opportunity to take a few photos of her! :)

Big Creek By Pint & A Half

I was born and raised not too far from Sam A. Baker State Park and spent a lot of time there.
Also, Big Creek ran by my house.  My brother, cousins and I played in and around that creek every day.
