Love is All You Need!Thursday, February 16, 2012
Happy Valentine's Week! I celebrate most holidays all week long, and Valentine's Day is no exception. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been enraptured with the pink hearts and colorful Valentine cards. I happily browse the holiday aisles just to see the gigantic teddy bears, heart shaped lollipops, and chocolate roses. There is just a magical feeling that I associate with Valentine's Day.
When I was very small, I developed an extreme illness around the beginning of February. I was in the hospital for several weeks and missed out on the Valentine's party at my school. When I came home from the hospital, I found a gigantic sheet of butcher paper pinned to my bedroom wall. It was pasted with a plethora of colorful cards, Valentine's doodles, and many "get well" wishes. That was the moment when I knew Valentine's Day would always have a special place in my heart.
I just adore the idea of a day dedicated to love. Not just romantic love. Love between friends. Love of one's family. and most of all, SELF LOVE.
This week is the perfect time to show yourself a little self love. Who better to be your Valentine than your beautiful self?
No one deserves your love more.
I saved you a cupcake, lovely!
Lots of love & warm fuzzies,
