Valentine’s Day is officially a month away! It’s funny, but the past few years, I had forgotten how much I LOVE Valentine’s Day. When I lived in New York, Valentine’s Day was always smack in the middle of New York Fashion Week, which sort of put a damper on things. Other than that, I think sometimes when you’re in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is kind of ruined. Weird? I’m just someone who really hates when someone does something for me out of obligation. I much prefer someone to do things for me because they WANT to, not necessarily because they feel they NEED to. I feel very uncomfortable about someone begrudgingly going through the motions of doing something because they think it’s what they SHOULD do. (Unless the person you’re in a relationship with is TOTALLY into it and loves the day! Or is highly creative.)
This year, I’m not seeing anyone special, so I’m reminded of the very reason I loved it to all along; it’s just FUN!
My mom has always loved to make holidays special for us. Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day. Even when I was in college or living on my own in New York, she’d send me a little surprise package with a cute pair of earrings, or a necklace, some candy, a card. I always loved getting them. (I think one of my love languages is definitely gifts!)
This year, I’m excited to have a little Galentine’s Day with a few girlfriends, and other than that, I haven’t really made plans!
So. Just because I’M single lady status, doesn’t mean YOU are. Which also means that you’re expecting your SO to get you a prezzie, right?? Great news- I’ve put together a little gift guide that you can “accidentally” leave open on the computer for him to see. Or, I mean, you can email it to him, that works too. LOL! (If that doesn’t work, email me, give me his email and I’ll make it happen for you haha!) It’s like the equivalent of having your bestie take your guy shopping for you. I volunteer as tribute. Just tell me what you want, we’ll get it done. 😉
