Some think of Valentine's Day as Singles Awareness Day - but not me.... NO WAY!


For some reason society makes us veer towards romantic rather then platonic love.  Don't get me wrong - romance is great & if you have a lover on Valentine's Day good for you.  But if you don't that's ok too.  In Latin American cultures people celebrate Dia Del Amor y la Amistad - Day of Love & Friendship. For them it's not only a day for romance.  And I think they have it right!


I am in my late 30s & I still do a ton for Valentine's Day.  I send my family cards, I buy my niece & nephew gifts (please, give me any reason to shop), make treats, do crafts with the kids, wear a splash of red, go out for a drink (who am I kidding - drinks)  & the list goes on & on.  And for the record I would do these things wether I was in a relationship or not.  


Is it a gay thing or just a matter of loving to be festive?!  Things get boring when every single day it's the same thing.  Please, give me a reason to be festive & celebrate & I'll take it.  And I feel no shame in it.  


If you're having a romantic Valentine's Day that's great - but if you aren't  do NOT feel funny about it.  Screw that.  It's not only a time to show affection for lovers but also for friends & relatives.  


So go out there & have fun! I do NOT want to hear about you blasting Adele & sobbing into your wine glass - don't get me wrong there should be wine - & lots of it - but only in a good & festive way!  Buy someone a gift or flowers - or better yet go "treat yo self."  Light a candle & watch "A Charlie Brown Valentine" or some cheesy Hallmark love movie, color a picture, get your hair blown out for heaven's sake!  I don't know just do something to celebrate the Holiday. 




(I know - I'm sure you're not shocked I've jumped on the "adult" coloring books bandwagon.  This heart tree page is from a Stress Relief Coloring Book exclusively sold at one of my "go to" stores Michael's - yes the ladies that work on Mondays know my name - kind of scary - but I digress.) And ps these treats are one of our fave go to's & are super easy & quick to do.  


Anyway, I clearly am into celebrating - but tell me what fun & festive things YOU are doing to celebrate the holiday?  Let me know here or over on social media.


Have an Amazing Valentine's Day! - Cheers - Hal
