Hey guys! Thanks for hanging out with me. I hope you’re all doing well on this fabulous Sunday. Today is February 14, 2021, and I hope you all still remember to social distance.
Okay, not to be a party pooper but Valentine’s Day is a bit overrated. It’s the time of the year when companies make a killing off of the love of other people. This one day when we go out and shop to buy cards, flowers, candy, dinner dates, etc…… Don’t get me wrong there was a time when I was all for Valentine’s day.
Taking the time to decide what I was going to buy and how I was planning the evening. Of course when I was dating my husband. Now that we’ve been married for 12 yrs and together forever, I don’t truly need to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Every day is Valentine’s day for me and my husband. Every once in a while we may buy each a card and he surprises me with flowers.
If we do anything for Valentine’s day it’s a family thing. We incorporate my daughter. We buy a card for her and give her a small piece of chocolate, or stuffed animal, and my husband and I will exchange a valentines day card. But this morning I made sure to tell him not to buy any Valentine’s day cards. He asked me why not? I told him because we don’t need to. He said but I love you, and I told him that I know and I love him too. That’s all that really matters. We don’t need one day to say I love you to each other when we say it and express it every day in our household.
I will admit that yesterday I did contemplate picking up V-day cards for everyone but this morning I knew I would be running out to grab my coffee from Duncan Donuts and I could just get it then. I realized why go through all the hustle and spending money when I don’t have to. We know what mean to each other and I don’t need Valentine’s day to validate that. Don’t get me wrong I’m not judging anyone who wants to celebrate Valentine’s day cause I have done in the past. I’m just stating that at this point in my life I don’t need to do that. Valentine’s day is just another day like all the rest of the holidays.
What’s your stance on Valentine’s Day? Do you celebrate or is it just another day for you? Let me know down in the comments. Happy reading 🥰 and I’ll see you around the blogs.
