Happy Friday and happy Valentine’s day! I can’t believe that it’s already February 13!
I love holidays. I love how spirited people get. I love the different fun traditions that go along with each holiday! I always loved Valentine’s Day in elementary school because it meant shortened class so that we could have a classroom party! It also meant decorating a box for valentines, making valentines for friends and classmates, spreading love, and eating lots of candy! I wish we still did this in High School! It was a great way to get to know other kids better. It also meant candy, which almost every kid loves. Just because I don’t have a Valentine’s Day party or pass out valentines anymore doesn’t mean I can’t spread the love in other ways, though! So, my plea to you is to make every day more like Valentine’s Day! Spread the love and spirit of Valentine’s Day every day!

4. Visiting Cornell University next week!
Next week, I don’t have school on Thursday or Friday (hooray for winter break!). I’ll be spending that time in Ithaca, New York to see Cornell! I am so excited. I can’t wait to check out Cornell, it’s #1 food science program, and the vegan scene in Ithaca! I’m going with my dad, and we’re going to check out the Moosewood restaurant (it has a lot of award-winning vegetarian cookbooks)! I can’t wait! Let me know if you live nearby! I’d love to meet up with a blogger friend or find another great veg-friendly restaurant to try 🙂
