Happy Valentine’s Day

When I was younger, I did not celebrate Valentine’s Day. I did not agree with the commercialism surrounding the holiday. I figured that if you really care about someone then you would show them everyday not just once a year. I had boyfriends who were disappointed that I did not find this holiday important.

Now, as a wife and a mother, I still feel that we should show our love all year which I do with my family. But, having kids has made me want to celebrate the holiday. I make sure my kids and my husband know how loved they are all year long, but I like to take this day to do a little extra for them. To give them something they can’t normally have. I don’t allow my kids to eat many sweets it junk food but today I allowed them to have some candy so that was a special treat for them.

I look forward to all holidays so I can “spoil” the special people in my life. I hope everyone had a great day even if they do not celebrate this holiday.

  1. I agree, it’s been too commercialised! But same applies with us in my house, we wish eachother a happy Valentine’s & we have a nice meal together – just making it that little bit more special than usual ❤💕

  2. I kinda agree…
    Appreciating people only once a year doesn’t seem right. If you love someone then you should do it year round. But I guess having a certain holiday dedicated to someone makes them feel special, like birthdays, fathers day, mothers day…
