Valentines, Galentines and self love?
How do we feel about the Feb 14th? I don’t like the idea of feeling pressured to do something just because it’s Valentines but as a hopeless romantic I do love any excuse to celebrate my love and friendship!
I have been together with my husband for 14 years and we were married 4 years ago. We try to make a card for each other every year as it’s more personal and fun. I always get him chocolates (his fav thing ever) and a little something and we try to have a special dinner at home if we can fit it into the day, if not we celebrate a few days later. I like to take it lightly, with a playful touch and not too much pressure. We believe it’s important for a healthy relationship to make time for special occasions and ‘keep the flame alive’ but this can be tricky with kids around and a busy life.
This year it’s half term and I’m going to a Galentines party (event) with a friend on Tuesday. So Chris and I will do a bit of Valentining on Friday when we plan to have a date visiting the Hayward Gallery to see one of our favourite artists. With a bit of Self love in mind I will probably get a little something for myself to remind me to take care of number one too!
Would love to hear what you think of Valentines day and what you tend to do? Do you love it or hate it?
Here’s a selection of prints that help remind us that love is so important whether it’s for our partner, our kids, our friends or even ourselves.
