Happy Pink Champagne & Cupcakes Day!

I know, I know, you're probably thinking what the hell is Pink Champagne & Cupcakes Day & where do I sign up? Well I invented it my friends & you are all welcome & encouraged to join in on my party.  In fact, this is how I decorate my clients' homes....
The truth is I have never liked Valentine's Day.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a total romantic- I believe in love that transcends space & time & am all for celebration of any kind but I feel like a day devoted to romantic love is a no-win situation.  If you're lucky enough to be in a happy relationship, well it just feels forced & kind of silly- your man getting price gouged on flowers & both of you confused as to whether you should be celebrating the day or not.  & if you're single & looking for love it's just another painful reminder of that (as if you needed one).

Now I love grand gestures- bring on the flowers, jewelry & fancy dinners- but it's pretty easy to do these things.  Really being there for the everyday things- career successes & setbacks, family & other relationship issues, the joy & drudgery of child rearing- is not always pretty or easy but it's what true love & intimacy is all about.  Always being supportive & having each other's backs no matter what.

So Valentine's Day be damned- I'm officially declaring today Pink Champagne & Cupcakes Day to celebrate my love of, you guessed it, pink champagne & cupcakes!  No pressure, no awkwardness, no pain - just bubbly sugary deliciousness :)

Whether you want to join my party or celebrate traditional Valentine's Day let's all just Feel the Love my peeps (& ride horses & be free & shit ;)....I love this song, it's like a church song you can rock out to....
