It Makes the World Go Round

Tomorrow is the day we celebrate the four-letter word described as tenderness, fondness, warmth, passion, even adoration.  It can bring us great joy, pleasure, and happiness. It can make us feel energetic, giddy, even euphoric. It can lower our blood pressure and stress levels, as well as lead to better mental health. Wow! It’s that intense feeling of affection, and the deep caring for another, it’s…L-O-V-E, love! 

Valentine’s Day is dedicated to honoring those we love. Our spouses, partners, children, family (furry ones included!), relatives, neighbors, and friends.

From my journal: February 6, 2023 Newbury Park, California

“Just mailed my Valentine’s Day cards to my family!  Still love to do this!”

Showering those we love with gifts, cards, and dinner on Valentine’s Day can be fun, but it can also be…well, stressful. Trying to find just the right gift, or card with just the right words to capture just the right feeling, or getting reservations at just the right restaurant, can be overwhelming, not to mention expensive. So, in an effort to add a little levity, a little laughter, a little lightness to the occasion, here are some love-related humorous quotes and puns. Nothing to do but sit back, read and enjoy, no cash required.
