I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day – just because it makes everyone who doesn’t have a valentine feel like some sort of unimportant, insignificant person. And, because if your day is anything less than what you have concocted in your mind, it’s completely ruined – regardless of whether you have a “valentine” or not. Last year, I sadly fell into the latter category – I had a “valentine” who didn’t so much as flinch that it was that annual day of love and I was devastated – all because the calendar says it’s “Valentine’s Day”. My mom saved the day and we ended up sneaking out for a movie together, enjoying some good girl time + laughs.
This year, I have a fun dinner planned with one of my best girlfriends. We made reservations at a new-to-us local spot and are going to dress up in something pretty, put on our best red lipstick, and click our heels (or snow boots, geez) off to a glam night! We are even going to make a second stop at the cinemas to see Safe Haven, probably like the rest of the ‘valentine world’ on Thursday. I’m so looking forward to it! What are your valentines day/night plans?
I’ve pulled together a few little gift ideas for you – maybe you need some last minute inspiration for that special someone, your mom, or your BFF that you’re going to dinner with. I don’t think it’s necessary to go all out, just a little something to let someone know you love them is the perfect gift.
