Even though Valentine’s Day has officially passed I thought I would give my two-cents on the holiday! If being honest, I am not a fan of most holidays; especially those that I think were created for Hallmark, and more importantly those that make others feel badly about themselves. Hence V-Day! SO what I recently decided is that it shouldn’t be about whether or not you have a partner in life to buy you a present or take you for a fancy dinner on this day, but more about the love YOU spread in this world to others and MOST importantly to yourself. I therefore have officially changed the name of this day from Valentine’s Day to Love Day – and feel good about it. P.S. I also did love the Galentine spin on it this year because you know – BFFs rock!!!!
