HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
HAPPY SINGLE’S AWARENESS DAY!
HAPPY COMMERCIALLY CREATED HOLIDAY!
Take your pick, I won’t be offended. Today is touchy to some people, but I happen to love the color pink, love bouquets (even if they aren’t for me), fully support eating chocolate, & love little valentines. I actually think the holiday should be focused on love in general, not just relationships. Single? You shouldn’t feel left out! You are equally deserving of a day filled with love, & I don’t think those in relationships should ignore you, either! There’s an unlimited number of people to spare some extra love for today, like yourself, best friend, a child, your mom, co-worker, stranger at the tolls behind you, waiter at the restaurant, bar tender, taxi cab driver.. If we took the focus off of romantic relationships & gave extra lovin’ to EVERYone around us, I think it could do a world of good. There are love & hearts everywhere, I mean, take a look at that bell pepper above! I’m in a relationship, but am I going out with my boyfriend for lunch? NO. I’m going out with my BFF!!
Below are today’s fit links all related to V-Day in some way, enjoy!
Holy yum. I will be making these this morning! Fitnessista is the wittiest blogger, so fun to read, & I’ve been following her for years. These bites are child approved, made in a flash, & are filled with nutrients like PINK goji berries (which immediately turn them into a V-Day snack, right)..
If you are currently eating or just received a bag full of red candies, please don’t read this today! Food coloring red 4 is created with quite the ingredient list.. Read on if it BUGS you that you don’t know! 😉
Why You Should Focus On Friendships This Valentine’s Day (cough cough, didn’t I just say that)
According to Greatist, 20 somethings could quite possibly be starving for friendship. Today marks a great day to take the focus off of relationships & give that old friend a call who you haven’t talked to in years. If you never make friends a priority, they certainly fall to the wayside.

Mashable writes about today’s Google Doodle & how you can pick your very own box of virtual chocolates, wrap them in a box, & send via social media to someone you love. Great for all of you last minute folks out there 😉 But be careful, I heard there’s some not-so-tasty options in the mix.
Thought Catalog is filled with hilarious & crude posts, so of course there would be one for V-Day. Pick a Valentine out of the 10 funny options & send to someone, although you just may do more harm than good.
CHEERS to love, remember it begins with you!
