will you be mine?

It's Valentine's Day, and I guess that merits a post. I have some issues with the "holiday". I think that picking one day out of the year to truly express how you feel to your significant other, or to go out of your way to do something special, is a little ridiculous. Shouldn't we be doing this everyday? Anyway, I don't want to be a downer, I just needed to say that....though, if the Husband wanted to give me diamonds, I won't resist! Be sure to check out the history of Valentine's Day here. So in honour of the day, here are a few of my faves...

Gustav Klimt, The Kiss

My older sister had this poster in her bedroom, and it was always my favourite! Photograph by Robert Doisneau.

Enjoy Valentine's....but try to remember to tell your special someone how much you love them every day!
