Valentine’s Day is a funny holiday. I remember in high school all the girls were getting flowers from their boyfriends and my name got called on the intercom. So my heart was racing (obviously), and I went to the office to get my flowers from my boyfriend… nope, from my DAD. I almost cried.
(Sorry, Dad! I love you! I can see now that you’re better than any boyfriend ever.)
Fast forward and these days I really don’t care too much about Valentine’s Day. I’m happily married, and all I really see Valentine’s Day as is an excuse to eat chocolate and sip champagne or buy myself flowers. (Is it bad that I just admitted that? Nah.) Oh and decorate things with hearts even MORE than I already do all year round.
But hey! What’s wrong with an excuse to eat chocolate and sip champagne and DRESS UP!
It may not be the most meaningful of holidays, but it sure has a good theme going. So maybe I shouldn’t be such a scrooge. I mean, there are worse things to celebrate than LOVE! Plus, now that I have this coral feather jacket and red velvet heart purse, I will take ANY excuse to wear them.
Anyway! This year Emma and I are sneaking off to sunny Chile with our Valentines. SO excited.
OK… throwing it to Emma now!!
I am stoked to spend Valentine’s Day in Chile with my valentine (Trey—I love you!) and my other best friend, my sister. The holiday doesn’t hold tons and tons of meaning for me either, but if you get to spend it with the ones you love, then I think you’re pretty lucky.
So, I’m pretty lucky this year. 🙂
