I used to loathe today. I was definitely one of those anti-vday ladies, even when I had a boyfriend to call my valentine. Hallmark holiday. Just an excuse to spend a ridiculous amount of money. Blah blah blah. If there was a reason to hate today, I used it. And then I got married.
Nothing much changed right away, but this is our second Valentine’s Day as a married couple and it wasn’t even a question that we were doing something together tonight. We planned out fondue, and a movie night, and chocolate covered bananas, and no computers or phone … all without the usual “well, let’s not doing anything because it’s a stupid holiday” conversation. And that’s when I knew I had lost my edge.
No matter if you’re single, or have a boy/girlfriend, or are married and able to spend today with someone special, or even with someone and can’t spend today with them – I hope today is filled with lots of love from someone. Even if that someone is yourself. And even if it’s in the form of sweet affirmations – I hope something is extra special today for you!
Luckily, I know someone is going to have an extra special day because they won the HUGE Valentine’s Day giveaway! The winner is: Cody Nations! Please email me within 48 hours to claim your prizes! :)
