I Love Holidays!!! Like anything in life, Valentine's Day is what you make of it. It can be just another day, or one that you devote to showing the ones you love just how much you care. It can be shallow or as deep as you choose to make it.
While some may argue the validity of its status as a holiday (seeing it simply as a goldmine for corporations), many others seem to beg to differ... spending a combined $13.19 billion dollars annually on their honeys for Valentine's Day in the US. That's a lot of cards, fancy dinners, boxes of chocolate, and dare I say.... lingerie?
I for one, think that love is always a great cause for celebration! So why not take this opportunity to make a meaningful gesture of love to the ones we love??
This doesn't necessarily mean we have to break the bank, however it does give us one more excuse to spend time with our loved ones; and show them how much we care- in whatever way we feel is right for us. Why shy away from opportunities to make life a little more colorful and a lot more enjoyable? We each have the ability to make our lives and the things we do meaningful, so why not take this occasion to do just that?
So, in honor of the up coming celebration of love, I'll be posting a week of Valentine's Day inspired posts, covering topics such as handmade and heartfelt gift ideas, festive and fun holiday facts, and creative and romantic date night ideas!
Also, coming up next week I have a special Valentines Day episode of DesignBliss.Tv planned. So, stay tuned!
