Happy Valentine’s Day yall! I have always loved this holiday ever since I can remember. I always loved dropping Valentine’s Day cards into everyone’s decorated shoe boxes every Valentine’s Day in elementary school, which was usually followed by a classroom party where we all ate wayyy too much sugar and probably drove our teachers insane (sorry, not sorry).
To this day I still feel so much excitement each year when February 14th rolls around, and not because of the cheesy heart shaped chocolate boxes, oversized stuffed bears, red roses, overpriced set menus, or the fact that I’m engaged, but because I always feel that it is a time where people feel encouraged to express love and appreciation for those who mean so much to them, whether it be your S.O., friend, classmate, coworker, or family member. Spreading the love is a rare thing these days, so it’s a nice change of pace when people can stop and smell the roses (pun intended).
This Valentine’s Day I want to encourage everyone to let the important people in your life know how much you care about them. Even if you just send a quick “Happy Vday” text (with various heart emojis obviously, have some respect).
But if you prefer to go the more traditional route and shower bae with gifts, I highly encourage you to come meet me and all the cool girls at Lily Rain at the Alamo Quarry this evening from 5-7 where there will be wine, treats, and 25% off select items! (Yes, I said free wine!) Click here for more info.
What are your plans this Valentine’s Day? Let me know in the comments below.
