Last night, Jeremiah and I went to see that new Valentine’s Day movie, and Ashton Kutcher has a one-liner that really captures the spirit of why I love this holiday so much. (I’ve tried to find the exact quote, but I don’t think the movie has been out long enough) It goes something like this:
Jennifer Garner: I just don’t know…. You really think I should fly all the way to San Francisco just to surprise him [her boyfriend] on Valentine’s Day?
Ashton: It’s Valentine’s Day! You don’t think you just DO!
And that’s it. It’s the one day that it’s totally socially acceptable to stand in the parking lot of your husband’s workplace (even in the drenching rain) bearing a sign that tells just how much you love him. Or to wear various shades of pink and purple and red from head to toe, because it looks like love, and that makes you smile. Or to spend a whole bunch of money on a dinner you can’t afford, because you want to shower down scrumptious love on somebody else.
Or you make a whole lot of bread: And honey cinnamon butter:And wrap it up: And come up with a little saying that you are ever-so-proud of 🙂 :
Because it’s Valentine’s Day! and you don’t think you just DO…and that makes me ever-so-happy.
