I have not written a blog since December. December, y’all. I’d say I’ve been busy, which is true, but terribly uninteresting since seriously who isn’t busy? Everyone is busy. Busyness does not make me a special snowflake. So I’m back at this writing game. And to keep me at it consistently for a while, this week I am going to write a new post each day leading up to February 14th. You know…Valentine’s Day?
As a teenage girl I dreaded this day because I was usually single and even when I was dating someone my expectations were so high it was impossible for me to be pleased (I was real pleasant y’all). As an adult I know that a lot of my single ladies out there are stressing over it. There is, of course, the typical cliche of single ladies everywhere wearing their sweat pants and eating ice cream all day trying to drown their single-hood sorrows. I get it. Sometimes being single sucks. Being married looks like it has some challenges too.
But I don’t think Valentine’s Day should just be about the person you are dating or married to. Valentine’s Day is a day that celebrates love! And if it doesn’t it should.
So leading up to Valentine’s Day I am writing a new post each day of the many ways love shows up in our lives and how we can celebrate it! Hope you enjoy!
