With Valentine’s Day approaching I figured it was the perfect topic to cover today.
I am of course single, but I am not one of those singles that hates Valentine’s Day. I kinda like it, and there are some things about it that I absolutely love.
One of the things I love about Valentine’s Day is my mum. Every year for as long as I can remember she has always gotten my four sisters and I Valentine’s Day presents. This usually consists of chocolate and socks in a nice gift bag filled with Valentine’s Day confetti and rose petals and little love heart soaps, and of course a beautiful card.
Given that all of her daughters are adults and some of them have partners I think it is a really sweet thing for her to continue to do. Getting my Valentine’s Day gift from my mum is one of my favourite things about Valentine’s Day.
One of my Valentine’s Day traditions is reading a romantic book while eating more chocolates than I should. I usually close Valentine’s Day by watching a super sweet movie. I love having a day to just getting all goofy and loved up with my reading and movies.
I also love the day after Valentine’s Day. It is the best day of the year to get cheep chocolate. I am a massive chocolate lover so any excuse to get cheap chocolate is a win in my book.
I don’t ever remember feeling sad or lonely on Valentine’s Day and I think that is one of the reason’s why I love the day even though I am single.
I love the idea of a day to celebrate love. I think we should remember to show our love this Valentine’s Day to not only our partners but to everyone. Our family, friends and even stranger on the street. A smile can go a long way.
So in honor of Valentine’s Day…
I LOVE YOU ALL…
