The Purpose of Valentine's Day

As far as I can tell from looking at Facebook, the purpose of Valentine's Day is to brag online about the cool things your husband/significant other did for you on the big day. Now, don't construe from this that I'm a hater. I know some people really dislike Valentine's Day, representing it as a contrived, artificial holiday to celebrate something as deep and undefinable as love, but I am not one of these people. I actually think Valentine's Day is a great excuse/reminder to do something nice for your significant other. In fact, this year it was an excuse for Austin to book us a trip to Maui for the weekend.

I basically spent the whole time in a swimsuit or a bathrobe: relaxing, swimming, snorkeling, whale and dolphin watching, beach-walking, and having nice dinners with my husband. (Yes, I even wore my swimsuit to one of those. For a pregnant, sunburned woman, less clothes = bliss.)

Happy Valentine's Day 2013!
