Don’t get me wrong. This is not one of those “I Hate Valentine’s Day” posts…I promise.
Valentine’s Day is coming up. Throughout my life, I have never understood the hullaballoo around making a reservation and celebrating a special day with your sweetheart, when everyone else is doing the same thing. Bryan and I both have done a lot, and not done anything at all for this holiday, and honestly, I am ok with either one. I’m a Libra after all. I’ll admit, it does make me feel special to get a delivery of my favorite flowers in the office. This year though, I want to do something different.
In Alice in Wonderland, they have Unbirthdays, where they celebrate birthdays on days in which it is actually not anyone’s birthday. This year, I want to celebrate the month of February like it is Unvalentine’s Day. I want to feel special every day of the month, and take time to tell Bryan how special he is in my life, and how much I love him. On February 14th, who knows what we will do. I will be fine with staying in, ordering takeout, and watching Battlestar Galactica. I would be fine if I get surprised.
What I will be doing is writing short and long love letters to my love. I will be sending him emails and hand-written notes throughout the month to let him know that I cherish him. I invite you to do the same for the one(s) in your lives. Maybe this is to your family, friends, and yes, sweeties.
Good luck & much love.
