I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. I feel like it’s a superficial way to force couples to remember each other. And, somehow it seems like it’s all the man’s responsibility to do something to celebrate. Anyway, I prefer when the love flows naturally. We ignore the holiday by attending a fun filled food affair (can you tell I like alliterations?).
It’s that time of year again for us here in the Sunshine State. The Florida State Fair.
In the past, the best thing about going to the State Fair on Valentine’s Day during the week, was that it was deserted. We practically had the place to ourselves. This year was quite the opposite. With the holiday landing on a Saturday, we had to summon our patience to come along on our non-date with us. People, people and more people everywhere.
This was the first year I wasn’t in the mood for crazy fried Fair foods.
We looked and looked and looked for our favorite goodie from years past, but we were disappointed not to find it there this time.
I did buy myself some playful things at the expo hall though. A cute purse, a phone case for my new cell, and … umm … what else? Oh yes … a tattoo.
Thanks for taking a peek inside our Valentine’s Day non-date. I thought we needed a lighthearted break from the intense Tale about Feet. I’ll be posting the continuation of that story on Wednesday.
How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? Do you celebrate with romance?
