Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m writing this post in DALLAS, which makes my heart so happy. I haven’t been back since the big move in December, and oh.em.gee I really missed Dallas—and everything that comes with it. Learning how to navigate a long-distance relationship has been basically torture, so obviously I’m thrilled my boyfriend and I are spending Valentine’s Day together. I’m so excited for tonight– We have an at-home sushi and spa night ahead of us, and I know it’s going to be so fun. You can never go wrong with a spicy tuna roll—am I right?!
I know some people hate the cheesiness of Valentine’s Day, but this holiday has honestly always been one of my favorites—and not just because of my deep obsession with anything pink and/or covered in chocolate. When my brother and I were little, my mom would put together Valentine’s Day baskets full of goodies and our favorite things. She actually did this for us through college and it was always so sweet. Mom, if you’re reading this, are we too old to bring this tradition back, lol?!
Whatever stage of life I’ve been in (single AF, a complicated mess or happily in a duo), Valentine’s Day for me has always been about celebrating love in all forms. Whether you’re sending a Valentine’s Day card to your grandma, throwing a Galentine’s wine night for all of your best friends or enjoying breakfast in bed with your hot man, remember it always comes back to celebrating the people you love. And definitely make it a priority to shower yourself with love too because the relationship you have with yourself is the most important one of all. Celebrate yourself because you are straight magic.
