Valentine's Day

Truth be told: I have never celebrated Valentine's Day with a significant other.

Nope. Nevah! 

That should probably make me feel ... sad? But it really doesn't. I mean, if I wanted to be sad about my significant lack of a significant other, I could choose to be sad about that every day of my life. Why would I wait for a designated day to do so?

Besides, wouldn't being sad on Valentine's Day ruin the fantasticness of all the chocolate and pink?

The answer to that is, yes!
While being un-attached on this day of love is all I have ever known, I am willing to try it attached.

But I just haven't had any luck.

Plus, I am not sure luck has ever been my friend. And I realized that perhaps that is where my problem is. I am going to need more than just mere luck to get a man to fall in love with me! Maaaaybe more along the lines of a miracle! Seriously, I need divine intervention at this point.

Best thing, I know just how to obtain said miracle!

Did you know that in Roman Catholic folklore, tradition has it that you can receive a miracle by burying a statue of one of their kjillion saints? The trick is this: burying the saint of the miracle you wish to receive.

For example, if you want to receive a miracle of fertility, you bury the saint of fertility. Whoever that is. I don't know who that is as I clearly don't wish for that in my life right now. :)

If you wish for a miracle of health, you bury Saint Luke.

Annnnnd, if you want the miracle of love in your life, which better saint to bury than Saint Valentine's on Valentine's?

While not Catholic, I thought it was worth a shot.

So I acquired Saint Valentine's.


And decided to bury it! 

Not wanting to dig up my yard, I decided to go to a secret location to perform the sacred ritual.

But because someone else could possibly destroy my miracle {buying digging up the statue}, I also included the following note.


I placed the note in a plastic bag and shoved gently placed the note into the statue.


And started digging, with Saint Valentine looking on.


And, as tradition goes, placed the statue in upside down.


P.s. The white specs you see are snow flakes! Fun, no?

Annnd, then for good measure: I threw in a pink, sparkly statue to keep Saint Valentines company.



 I then replaced the earth to its original spot. 


And sealed it with a heart.


And lastly, when your miracle presents itself, you recover the statue from the earth.

Lucky little husband. The day he becomes my husband, we will take a trip to the unsaid location and retrieve Saint Valentines in appreciation of the miracle performed.

Naturally, I will keep you all updated. 

Just don't hold your breath. It never said how long it would take for the miracle to manifest. :)

Hope your Valentine's Day was filled with love and all things pink!

I'm so glad you didn't leave poor St. Valentine there alone. It must be better to stand on your head with a friend. :)

That is so awesome! I hope that works for you. If it does, I'm totally finding and burying the fertility statue. :)
