Day 45. Valentine's Day has long been one of my favorite days of the year. The only reason not to like it is all the whiny naysers, or those who accuse it of being a Hallmark holiday. I mean what a bummer that we have a holiday decidated to love. Would they prefer a day dedicated to hate and anger? And who cares if you don't have a romantic Valentine's Day. If that's your expectation going into it, yoiu're setting yourself up for failure. It's about sweet treats and cheap punny little cards. Being in elementary school and receiving Ninja Turtle valentines left warm fuzzies that still ring true today. Sure, I want romance and flowers and a nice dinner. But in lieu of all that, the cheezy cards and puns are amazing! So yeah. Please don't whine about Valentine's Day in my prsennce today, or you'll be receiving an earful about how it's one of the greatest days of the year.

To quote my from Khalid…

Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
