Happy Valentine’s Day! Image used courtesy of queenbeefashionista4 from Instagram.
Today, like many holidays, can be difficult if you don’t have someone to share the day with. I would like to stress the point that really today is like every other day, only special because someone long ago felt we needed a specific day to celebrate love. So don’t despair if you are a single lady! Practice some self-love today. Buy yourself flowers, chocolate, a manicure, a new dress, new lipstick colour, a new scent to spritz or a special meal. Do it for you because you deserve it and you don’t need anyone else to prove you are worthy of special things. Gather friends for a pot luck Valentine dinner, settle in for a night of Netflix and your favourite snacks or take a long soak in a bubble bath with soothing music and candlelight ambience to relax and unwind.
Not saying this to brag but just want to express gratitude for my blessings. I have a loving husband who treats me like a queen. He is a good caretaker, friend and life partner as well as a fabulous father. No he’s not perfect but neither am I. This morning I woke up to decorations and flowers.
Hearts were hanging from everywhere; windows, lights and ceiling hooks. It was very festive indeed!
The day was not all roses and hearts however. Our decluttering work continued as we cleared out and brought six bags of stuff to our church donation box.
The “get rid of stuff” room is starting to empty!
So whatever this day was for you, a work day, a self-love day or a couple day, I hope above everything else it was a happy day! Remember you are loved by people far and wide especially me, your Pretty, Plus and Proud friend in Canada!
