It’s here! Valentine’s Day ❤ Tell you Valentine you love them with a corny valentine or a serious love note. Hearts abound and Cupid is busy today. Not to mention the candy industry, the card industry, the flower industry and restaurants. Tomorrow the lawyers may be busy if you don’t let your loved one know how much they are loved.

The day after Superbowl Sunday is National Poop Day. After eating all those unhealthy, fatty snacks you need to have a good poop and get rid of all those toxins. Celebrate National Poop Day by having a good poop or telling a poop joke.

So to follow-up with the Valentine’s Day theme, today is also National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day. I’m certain there’s a good poop joke there somewhere. 😉

Continuing the countdown to Valentine’s Day today is National Freedom to Marry Day. Everyone, regardless of who they love should have the freedom to marry.

We also celebrate that great fictional character of the wild frontier as we celebrate Paul Bunyan Day. That loveable lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his Ox Blue.

I have no idea why, but today is also National Plum Pudding Day. Maybe this is the day you need to make next Christmas’ pudding?

Remember Thomas Edison and share that enthusiasm with Women and Girls as we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

I haven’t had a peppermint patty in ages. I remember buying PEP as a child and eating the minty chocolate. So celebrate Peppermint Patty Day and indulge in a dark chocolate covered soft peppermint.

Turn it off….today is National Cut the Cord Day. Celebrate by turning off your electronic devices, after you finish reading my blog. 😉

Take some time today to indulge and celebrate Read in the Bathtub Day. For those of you who don’t have a bathtub, make yourself a foot bath and soak those tired dogs while you read a book.

Easiest to celebrate is Pizza Pie Day. I haven’t had pizza for a couple of weeks, so Papa John’s sounds like a good choice to celebrate this holiday with.

I’ve set up my temporary studio in a closet sized room and continued on the Cloud Challenge #jesseroberston
