Shocking news from a self-professed hopeless romantic– I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day.
Even though I’ve been happily married to my forever-Valentine for years and years, I find this holiday to be a little, well…forced.
It’s has it’s perks, of course– the chocolate.
Growing up, my parents always gifted me with a heart-shaped box of Russell Stovers at Valentine’s Day. To this day I think that the chocolates that come from the heart-shaped box taste better.
My husband and I don’t really celebrate V-Day. We don’t spend money on gifts and I don’t think we’ve gone to dinner on Valentine’s Day since we were dating.
Many call this holiday Singles Awareness Day and I’m all for that. Some of you might be unattached. You might be considering boycotting love all together, and sometimes I’ll admit that I can’t blame you. Romance can be difficult to navigate, and sometimes we wonder if we’ll ever find the ONE. But to quote the ever-quotable Scarlett O’Hara, “Tomorrow is another day!”
So whether you’re attached or not on this holiday, I bring you a little splash of romance to celebrate what we should be celebrating 365 days a year.
This song from one of my favorite bands is so stinkin’ romantic, it makes me swoon. It’s called Never Stop by Safetysuit. Give it a listen and see if it doesn’t melt you a little.
This movie, which I discovered a few years ago, which might be one of the most romantic movies I’ve ever seen.
It’s called The Lost Valentine, from Hallmark Hall of Fame. If you haven’t seen it, you should make it a priority.
Share with me: What is the most romantic movie you’ve ever seen? What’s the most romantic song you’ve ever heard?

I’m a big fan of SafetySuit! And Valentine’s means a lot to me and my husband because we celebrate our first date. Nineteen years ago today. 🙂
I don’t know if I can pick just one song or movie. I really love Follow You by Jon Mclaughlin.
I love Jon Mclaughlin, too. Our playlists might be very similar!
Had to laugh about the half price candy thing – my sisters and I look forward to the day after a holiday because of this. 🙂 Haven’t heard of these movies so will have to check them out. Thanks!
Congrats to Debbie!
Right? Who doesn’t live half priced chocolate! 🙂
I won, I won! Thank you, Jenny! I am a sucker for romantic comedies and my fav of all times is “Sleepless in Seattle.” My brother lives in Seattle and I have even seen the houseboat where it was filmed on Lake Union. It was on sale the last time we were there for around $2 million. Now wouldn’t that be a great summer home??
Movie – “You’ve Got Mail”
Song – the 50s classic, “You Belong To Me”
“While You Were Sleeping.”
“How Can I Live Without You” Trisha Yearwood
I like the Trisha version much better than the LeeAnn Rimes version.
