How many of you saw this post and groaned? Be honest, we’re all friends here. I know a lot of people look at Valentines Day with disgust and jaded memories of loved ones who have let you down. But I am not such a person. Those of you who have followed my articles will know that I love love. Every cheesy line in every romcom fills me with a goofy sense of fulfillment that all is right with the world because Boy met Girl and they fell madly in love despite the problems they faced in the last 1 hour and 30 minutes. HOORAY! For every scenario you can throw at me to question the validity of love and its presence in our modern world I will have an equally annoying scenario to throw back to prove to you that love exists and it flourishes within all of us, at some time in our lives. You can remember such a time, I know you can. The first date with someone special, that time he/she surprised you… come on people! Jump on the merry bandwagon of loving love and I promise you from the bottom of my rose coloured glasses that your heart will thank you for it.
To spread the joy that Saint Valentine intended (or would have, if equipped with a glue stick and glitter) I’m sharing the best Valentine DIY and treat ideas, hoping to inspire even the most cynical to send a little love into the world on February 14.
For singles who are shaking their heads thinking “not me this year” why not host a friend party? I’m fairly certain Valentine’s Day is, at it’s core, about love – of ANY kind! Break out the DIY decorations, make some cute heart shaped donuts and toast to the people in your life who make you thankful for love.
Happy Feb 14th lovers!
