I don’t really “hate” Valentine’s Day, it’s just not my favorite holiday. I’m sure this post is going to make me sound like a huge pessimist, but hey you can’t be sparkles and sunshine all the time. I know a few people may even think, “what does she have to bitch about? She’s married.” Also true, but I’m going to share with you three reasons why I dislike Valentine’s Day.
See that wasn’t so bad. I wasn’t a total Negative Nancy. I think part of the reason why I dislike the holiday is why most people may as well, it’s all common sense reasons really.
I did an interview yesterday at the Into App event at the Arlo Hotel and I had to share my worst Valentines Day experience and I really couldn’t pinpoint one good or bad experience from the holiday. When I thought about the good Valentines Day I instantly thought of my Mom.
Every year for Valentines Day my Mom goes out of her way to do the sweetest things for my sister and I. She always makes these really great packages and boxes with all our favorite things and our favorite candies. One year she brought a basket to my work attached with balloons. She filled the basket with all my favorite things. She even threw in handmade chocolate covered roses sprinkled with bacon and chocolate covered bacon. For anyone that knows me I lovvvvve bacon.
Another year my Mom delivered roses to my work, but they weren’t just any roses they were bacon roses. Below is a picture of the roses she made out of bacon (don’t mind the photo, it was hit with a heavy lo-fi Insta filter). The entire office smelled like bacon. It was glorious. I told you I love bacon.
I’m not sure what Eric and I are doing for Valentines Day this year. I am more than happy sitting on the couch, watching a movie, and ordering Prince Street Pizza.
I do sincerely wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day! No matter if you’re single, have a boyfriend, or married I hope you have the best day. I hope someone today makes you feel special and whether that’s your husband, a friend, or even your Mom you deserve to feel loved.
Happy Valentines Day!
