So much love!

It’s no secret that I love Valentine’s Day. Always have, always will!

I loved it when I was single and I love it now that I”m married.

Mainly, I just love celebrating LOVE.

There is so much negativity in the world and I’m glad we have one day each year that celebrates our relationships with others.

Of course, I don’t think Valentine’s Day necessarily has to be limited to celebrating romantic love (although, I do love my husband).

Last year I took February 14th as an opportunity to write little emails to my best friends and family members as a ‘thinking of you because you’re awesome’ type of thing. Do I do this sort of thing even when it’s not Valentine’s Day? Of course! But is there anything wrong with using this particular day as a special excuse to express love to one another? Absolutely not!

And I, for one, plan on using Valentine’s Day to celebrate some self-love by getting a good night’s sleep, eating well, exercising, praying, journaling, reading a good book, and actually spending some time on my appearance so I feel extra-great.  I suppose if I have any time/energy after all of that, I may spend some time loving on the Husband, too!

Speaking of things I love… besides the important people (and dogs) in my life, here are a few other things I’m loving right now:

  • The Olympics
  • Anything hot pink
  • Big snowflakes
  • Scarves
  • Hot chocolate
  • Thinking of how we can decorate our new apartment (we move in 2 weeks!)
  • Good hair days
  • Long conversations with girlfriends
  • Anthropologie candles
  • Yoga
  • Greeting cards
  • Days when I can work from home
  • Reading
  • Oreos
  • Warm socks
  • Watching Oz play in the snow
  • Ampersands
  • Colorful lipgloss
  • Answered prayers

 

What are you loving this week?! Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day tomorrow?

 

 Cheers!
