Hello and welcome to the most reviled/made up/angsty/anticlimactic holiday of the year! This unassuming Monday has launched a thousand expensive Italian dinners, adorable over-the-top romantic gestures, and feel-good Very Special Episodes, and also just as many bitter Daria marathons and stalking of our exes that we later sincerely regret.
What are you doing today? Treating someone to a fancy steak dinner? Treating yourself to a fancy steak dinner? Enjoying the tiny chocolate hearts at the office and then coming home to make handmade potholders, just like every other Monday? Creating a Plan B after confirming that The Olive Garden doesn’t take reservations?
What was your best/worst Valentine’s Day ever? Does your Mom make you a heart-shaped strawberry confetti cake every year?
Share any and all feelings here, and we’ll see if we can’t talk you down from baking three dozen chocolate espresso cupcakes with raspberry buttercream for your ex. Or if you’re going to bake them anyways, at least share the recipe.
