Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I am a huge fan of love, oozy-gooey-ness, all things cheesy and romantic so Valentine’s Day is kind of my jam. Also, to make my Valentine’s Day even better I was able to guest post over on my friend Danica’s blog while she is taking her maternity leave (she makes the most ADORABLE baby girls) and I discuss some methods I use to try and cope with not being in a Disney park. Feel free to hop over to her page and read my post by clicking here.
I’ll be honest, I had amazing intentions of doing some creative Valentine’s Day posts leading up to the big day of love. But so far February has thrown me for a loop and nothing has really gone as planned. I have been a giant ball of anxiety, I cry at…everything, and H has been extra needy so I have been much more attentive to him. I was going to have a post or two about some Valentine’s Day make up looks (i was even going to possibly do a video!), I was going to have a post dedicated to my Valentine’s Day inspired outfit and I was going to write a post about how Wild Man and I met and maybe something talking about our engagement story. I was also going to do a post about my home decor, because I’m not going to lie, my Valentine’s decorations are bomb. I had so many good ideas and I was so excited. But family always comes first — and honestly so does my sanity so I had to sacrifice some things to make sure my family was ok and to make sure I was ok. Does that sound so lame? Maybe. But that is why this is my Valentine’s Day post. This is nothing special or fancy – but ironically, thats kind of how our Valentine’s Days go. And I love it.
Wild Man and I like to stay true to ourselves on Valentine’s Day. It is really fun to go out and go somewhere fancy for dinner, but nothing makes us quite as happy as when we stay home in our comfy clothes, watch some tv, eat a homemade meal and watch H play and laugh at the cute little things he does. That sounds like an amazing night to me. I know thats now everyones cup of tea, but that is ours and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am excited to cuddle on the couch and eat some junk food and drink a few Diet Cokes. Oh, what a great day. And don’t worry, I’ll still be wearing pink and red and rocking a red lip. Its Valentine’s Day, after all.
I hope you guys all have a great day. Just a reminder, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a downer if you don’t have a husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend. You can celebrate the love you have for your family, for your friends, for yourself, for your dog! The options are endless.
