It is after all a day to celebrate love. It was an awesome day and I feel really happy thinking about it. Some of you will thankfully not care. The romantics out there will sigh and silently wish it would happen to them too, but the rest of you will have some adverse reaction to this information; from a mild stomach churn to almost breaking out in hives at the very thought.
