corner view: Valentine's day


La verdad es que no existe celebración del día de San Valentín en mi casa. Particularmente nunca me ha parecido una fecha especial y aunque desde los primeros días de febrero en las calles se puede ver cómo funciona la mercadotecnia para consumir corazones, flores, globos, decoraciones en rojo, chocolares y muñecos de peluche, sólo me parece eso, una fecha atractiva para vender.

Con esto no quiero decir que estoy peleada con el romanticismo ni que no me guste tener momentos especiales con mi pareja y con amigos, es sólo que creo que no es necesario fijar una fecha al año para hacer algo especial, se puede hacer (y tener) cualquier día y esa idea me gusta más. Además creo que tener ciertas expectivas en algunas fechas "especiales" pueden provocarte que si no se cumplen, te dejen una sensación de decepción.
Y así, sin tener ninguna espectiva en ese día, esta vez fui sorprendida por una linda amiga con hermosos tulipanes...

The truth is that there is no celebration of Valentine's Day at my house. It never seems like a special day to me and even when you can see in the streets from the first days of February, how marketing works to consume hearts, flowers, balloons, decorations in red, chocolares and stuffed animals, it just seems to me that, a a very good time to sell.

But I'm not saying that I'm fought with the romance or that I don't like to have special moments with Alex or friends, just I think it's not necessary to have one day a year to do something special, I think that you can do (and can have) something special any day of the year and I like that idea. I also believe that when you having kind of expectations in some "special" celebrations can make that if you don't get it, you'll have a disappointment feeling.

And without any expectation on that day, this time I was nicely surprised by a lovely friend with beautiful tulips and that feels so nice... !!

feliz corner view!

  5. Oh! Mis flores favoritas! Que belleza! Gracias! Por aquí tampoco lo celebramos... demasiado "marketing" para mis gustos así que todos los días son días del amor y de la amistad. Besos!

  6. Beautiful tulips. Perfect for this day... and all the days... We have to celebrate love every day...
    In French, there is a sort of quote saying : make love, not shopping ;)
    Have a nice day :)

  8. Ditto on all of that! We don't celebrate it here either but every day when I come home from work tired, my boyfriend has the couch and blankets ready and made up and is making me tea, so I can just sit down and relax. That is worth more to me than roses on valentine's day :) Lovely tulips though!

  9. Seems as we have absolutely the same opinion about the topic! There are 365 days per year to celebrate love! ;)

  10. La verdad, ese tipo de días y la espectativa creada no son buenas, cuando las cosas no han ido bien...pero hay que saber alegrarse por los demas...
