I definitely went through my phases of being bitter (and single) on Valentine’s Day, but though this day may be another made up holiday to most, I’ve fully embraced the excuse to show a little more love on what would otherwise be just another day in the week. Why not, right? This is Michael and I’s third together, and I love the excuse to take a break in the middle of the week to celebrate each other (and eat some delicious food, of course). We have fancy dinner reservations tonight, mostly because it’s a restaurant we haven’t been to in over a year and we just wanted to treat ourselves, and we exchanged gifts last night because we (I) are impatient.
Funny story – we both secretly went to House of Floralie to have our gifts wrapped, and we ended up with matching wrapping since our friend Bobby knew exactly what I loved from me gushing about the new Rifle Paper wrapping paper while he wrapped Michael’s gift.
Whatever your Valentine’s Day plans consist of today, I hope you find time to either show a little more love to someone you love, and yourself. For me, it means leaving work early to get a hair trim because that extra hour back to myself instead of sitting at the office is what dreams are made of.
