The relationship I was in before dating J was 6 years of not celebrating Valentine’s Day, or really any holiday or birthday for that matter, because we were broke college students who just didn’t care. Now I’m in a better financial state (and better relationship) and I’m still just not into the holiday. Like, make me a handmade card and I’m good to go (go figure). (And don’t you dare get me chocolates because you know I’m trying to eat better.)
When I talk about Valentine’s Day plans, it’s in a “We should probably do something, huh?” kind of way. “I guess we could go to a movie…we’ve been wanting to see Les Miserable anyways.” And honestly, now I feel like the work craziness I experience before the holiday impacts these feelings even more. I’m in a state of I don’t want to do anything but sit here on the couch.
But this most likely will not stop me from getting dressed up, putting on my festive Much Love Illy headband (20% off with the code SPRINGCLEANING) and get lovey dovey with J. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
