Valentine's smalentine's!

here's a little guinea pig to wish you a happy v-day....inspiration taken from - if you've never been to that page and don't want to get addicted to the cuteness, for heaven's sake don't click on the link!!!!

Joe and i really don't "do" valentine's day. i have a problem with a day that tells us that we have to buy things for people or we don't love them. or that if you don't have a date on this particular day of the year (which is usually a really bad night to go out) you should feel bad. i rebelled 10 years ago today and threw my first ever "i hate valentine's day" party! yes, the tradition is now 10 years running. it consists of beer, scary movies and good friends. now, i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "but michelle, 10 years ago you were only 19. how did you get beer?" my response to that is, "YOU SHUT UP! I KNOW YOU HAD BEER AT 19 TOO! CANADIANS CAN DRINK AT 19!!!"

but i digress.

i find as i get older i really don't hate valentine's day as much anymore. i still don't want to go out or anything or buy/receive presents, but i don't know if i'll continue rebelling against it as much as i've been the last few years. i do like a day where you usually get a ton of candy for no reason....

Yay for us Canadians and our beer! I have to say I really missed your guy's hating Valentine's party this year :( But the sight of this adorable guinea pig is cheering me up quite a bit.
