It’s that time of the year when couples are finalizing their plans for the next evening. Making sure the dinner reservations are in place, flowers are purchased, candy and card is set to receive…maybe some jewelry for those who are lucky. 💍👍🏼
It’s fine and all, I’m not anti-Valentine’s Day at all. Just because I’m as single as a Pringle doesn’t mean that I hate everything that this particular holiday stands for. And I know I don’t go crazy posting all kinds of ideas for gifts, desserts, decorations, etc. I guess I’m just not that kind of person. I’ve been blessed with witnessing what real love is like. It goes beyond flowers, candy, cards, and jewelry. It’s been see what 46 yrs of trying not to kill each other looks like! 😏 That’s a joke, seriously…my folks will most likely see this so I’m joking! Love you both! 💘
I could pretend to be all wrapped up in this holiday like every other blogger out there, that just isn’t my style. Don’t get me wrong I love planning out all kinds of stuff for kids, in fact I’ve been busy for a few weeks now doing just that. Had to push the party back by another week since so many have been out sick lately, which gives me some extra time to get my ducks in a row. But when it comes to adults, I can’t help but withdraw.
Again, nothing against this holiday at all. I’m just a practical romantic when it comes to down to it. No need to get all glitzy, frilly, or expensive.
Honestly, I am all for that kind of date night! 👆🏼True, it’s been 16 yrs since I’ve dated…and believe me that was as painful to admit as it was to read, but like the title says “it could be worse.” Which it honestly it could be. There are worse things than being single on Valentine’s Day. How about…
- Being in a bad relationship with someone who doesn’t truly love you.
- Getting beat up all the time.
- Not knowing if you’re going to wake up the next day or not.
- Dying of injuries from blunt force trauma.
(Seriously, the only box of chocolates I truly care about! I’m a big ol’ softy when it comes to labs! Even the dark chocolate variety.)
