I’m not ashamed to admit that I am one of those people that love to celebrate Valentine’s Day! As commercialized as this Holiday has become over the years, at its core Valentine’s Day is about celebrating all kinds of love in your life.
Yes, you don’t need a Holiday to dictate one specific day to express love for your loved ones, but it’s an extra special day to tell your lover, friends, family and/or children that you appreciate and love them for who they are. And for me, Valentine’s holds a special place in my heart. I posted a little about Alex and my story on Instagram.
I enjoy everything about the Holiday: decorating my home for the holiday, receiving and giving gifts and spending part of the day with just my husband at a romantic restaurant (gasp – so cliché!). This year I also took the time to write cards of love and gratitude to my parents, my daughters and close friends, because this is what this Holiday is about – celebrating all the Love in your life.
How do you celebrate those you love on Valentine’s Day?
