Although I lost a very dear beloved person on this day 2 years ago, I still try to celebrate the day of love. Not that we go overboard and that we don’t celebrate our love any other day of the year.
And yes – it’s a commercial thing, business, super markets, stores, all the big brands – they all have joined in by advertising Valentines as THE day of showing your love for a significant other. And honestly, I do but my husband a gift on that day… although I know it’s a day like any other day.
But we don’t have to be holier than the pope do we? I’m sure lots of you out there buy your loved ones a gift on Valentines. And that doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t do anything for them the other 355 days of the year!
This morning I came out of the shower and there was a gift bag on the kitchen counter, which I totally ignored the first time I walked by. Once I noticed it and I saw the smile on the hubby his face, I knew it was for me. Some lovely chocolates and a fresh bottle of fragrance of the same type I have been wearing for a while now, but it’s as good as finished now.
It’s these little things that make us feel good, no? Makes me feel good, I know that much.
So… what did you get?
What’s your view on Valentine?
