Agatha's super-duper cure for Valentine’s day blues

So you don’t have a significant other, but to be cynical and “down-with-love” isn’t your style on a holiday—so you don’t want to get together with the girlfriends for a bitchfest. What shall you do with yourselves?

I propose you have dinner with some of your good married friends. I’ll bet many of them aren’t doing anything terribly special on this day of love—and there’s nothing better than hanging out on the feast day of the patron of marriage that hanging out with those who really witness to a good happy and healthy marriage themselves.

Maybe I’m strange, but I love hanging out with my married friends. I am lucky enough to have one of the couples I adore staying with my on valentine’s day—so I’m making a nice festive dinner (complete with a chocolate wine sauce for the beef), but not going over the top.

And, since we’re catholic: let’s not forget that tomorrow is also the Feast of Sts. Cyril and Methodious—who are awesome. So there are lots of reasons to celebrate. Don’t be lonely, and blue. Have fun. Wear Red. Celebrate love!
