VERY, EXTREMELY, INSANELY LAST-MINUTE VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT IDEA

Hello, Valentine’s Day –– we meet again. I’ve never been a huge Valentine’s Day girl. I mean, don’t get me wrong –– I used to love in grade school when it was a free for all as far as eating chocolate, hoping that my crush was going to suddenly come to their senses and love me, and all of the pre-bought store notes from classmates that were required, not warranted. However, in adulthood, I’ve certainly found myself on the more cynical side of the Valentine’s Day equation. I mean, how many burpees do I need to do to work off an entire heart filled with chocolates? And why is the ratio of good chocolates to nasty, cherry goop filled chocolates so askew? Also, why can’t I just go ahead and buy my own chocolates if I have to blatantly remind my husband that it’s Valentine’s Day anyway? Sigh.
