Things I Like — Small Holidays

Our first year together Bean asked if I celebrate Valentine’s. (He is deeply sentimental but unmoved by arbitrary dates.)

I explained I don’t like holidays intended for big-wow-one-off kindness, the sort of thoughtfulness or spontaneity depicted in ads and movies I’d rather have sprinkled all across life, not predetermined by marketing execs.

But nonetheless, an excuse to celebrate however quietly the things and people which matter to you most is usually a blessing if you do it authentically.

May your Fathers Day Weekend be full of true happiness, what ever shape or make-up your family.
