Some love it; some dread it; some despise it and some don’t care either way but (in case you haven’t noticed) it’s Valentine’s Day this weekend!
I’m one of those people that actually really like this day. To make it clear, I completely agree with the idea that you should celebrate love every day. At the same time, however, I think on Valentine’s; it’s all about making that little extra bit of effort. That doesn’t mean you have to clear out your bank account or make these elaborate plans or dramatic gestures. It’s just about ensuring that you spend quality time with someone (or ones) that you love.
If you’re single, arrange to meet up with loved ones and make some fun plans. If you’re romantically involved with someone, just enjoy the day with your other half. Day-to-day life can be stupidly busy and demanding so Valentine’s Day is good for forgetting about everything else and just focusing on your relationship (s). I don’t think it’s necessary to do all the stereotypical things but at the same time, a lot of those things are fun so why not?! Don’t blow your budget but don’t be afraid to have a little splurge either. We’re going out for dinner and drinks and I can’t wait to get dressed up and have a fun indulgent night!
Ultimately, I believe February 14th should be celebrated. Whether you spend it with a significant other, friends or family; it’s the perfect time to relax and do your favourite things and just be happy! Whatever your plans, I hope you all have a lovely weekend :-).
