I just finished making a Valentines day playlist. It’s got your standard love songs (Buble, Sinatra, Coldplay) and then a smattering of those favorites that take me back to the early days of falling in love with my now husband (The Killers, Rocket Summer, Backstreet Boys). Yes, it’s February 14th. The sun is shining (er, it was…), the snow is melting, I’m just getting over the big winter cold and I ate a piece of chocolate for breakfast. Some people hate this day arguing that it’s just a Hallmark holiday, it’s Single Awareness Day (S.A.D.), or it’s a sorry excuse to be romantic for one day. Now, I wouldn’t say that I’m a huge fan of Valentines day, but I am a fan none-the-less. It’s much more than just being cute and in love your significant other. It’s about celebrating love – with friends, family and those around you who could benefit from a little smile.

So, if you are feeling S.A.D. or you are totally in love – enjoy today. It’s Monday, the beginning of a beautiful week, and today is much bigger than just a Hallmark Holiday. Get out there, wear a smile, eat some chocolate and figure out how you can spread some love around. Even if you can’t feel it, love does exist. Sometimes, you just have to find it.

And because sometimes we need a reminder, here are two couples who are giving a chance on love. Both sessions will be gracing the blog very soon…
