Just wanted to take a moment to wish you a very happy and loving Valentine’s Day. If you didn’t know, I am single. And while dating hasn’t always been kind to me, I still hope for the best and live every day like its my last. Over the years, my heart has softened for the mush fest Valentine’s Day is. And there are some that are very anti-valentine’s day while others are total saps (in a good way).
But I wanted to take a minute to cover all the bases.
So, you’re single on Valentine’s Day?
Its okay. I have had more Valentine’s Days as a single lady than a non-single lady. And you know what? I have had more fun with the former! One year, as a newly single woman, I threw a party for all my single friends on Valentines Day. On another, I went out with my parents. This year, my roommate and I are having dinner at Otto. So, you’re single. Take the opportunity to bask in the joy of not having to buy an expensive gift for your valentine and buy it for yourself! LOVE yourself!
If you’re Not Single on Valentine’s Day…
Don’t just save the L word for today. If you love someone, say it every day! And do make sure that when you shell out that cash for the big teddy bear and chocolates that you know for sure your sweetie loves it. I will never forget the day my ex took me hiking on Valentine’s Day… and I sprained my ankle earlier in the day and endured pure hell on the ice coated rocks and hills. Valentine’s Day Fail.
And you don’t have to spend your weekly earnings at a restaurant! You know what’s sexy? A mate that can cook! Turn the lights down low, set the dining table with flowers and candles and enjoy a romantic home cooked meal together. You can even have your “dessert” first… know what I mean? ::wink::
And speaking of Dessert… Whip up these sexy treats for your hunny…or for yourself,
if you’re in the mood to eat a batch of brownies and cry watching a sappy Rom Com.
Well, that about sums it up! I hope you have a Mushy and Love Filled Valentine’s Day!
