Awesome Valentine’s Day Smooches

[portfolio_slideshow]

Valentine’s Day is not just about expressing love with flowers, cards and candy — it is also about being deeply, deeply sad that you cannot split a celebratory bottle of Shiraz with your husband or slip into sexy lingerie without resembling a sausage because you are five months pregnant.  Or maybe that’s just my romantic view of it.

As any historian will tell you, the holiday is rooted in honoring Saint Valentine, a romantic martyr who was persecuted as a Christian and, more importantly, as a lover of Internet memes, especially funny pictures of babies, cats and dogs kissing.

This slideshow is for you, St. Valentine.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
