I am quite the romantic, but I've always thought that Valentine's day is the antithesis of romance with its hyper-commercialism and the disproportionate amount of stress it induces on the male population. In my mind, no amount of long-stemmed roses and chocolates will ever supersede the inherent loveliness of a simple heartfelt kiss, a warm embrace, and eternal love.
... However, if any of my secret admirers out there would like to slip these in my letter box, I certainly wouldn't say no. ;)
Love, Mandy. xx
