Seeing as how my Valentine’s day plans for a weekend road trip came to a screeching halt earlier this week thanks to the beau’s new work schedule, I have been scrambling ever since to plan my half of our celebration here in town.
Reservations to many of our favorite restaurants and the ones on our list to try, have been impossible to get or at least reservations at a decent hour. Every live music or theater event of interest is sold out and spa resort stays are all completely booked. I’m fresh out of ideas for something outside of the norm to do and if it weren’t for the fact that we’ve been spending quite a bit of time around the house, I promise I’d go with the old dinner at home, “etc, etc” routine.
I’m naturally a holiday/birthday fanatic so I do tend to go over the top at times but with all the madness these past few days, I am reminded of just how much Valentine’s Day is overrated.
I gotta have me a good picture on IG for Valentine’s Day.
My FB check-ins gonna be on point for Valentine’s Day.
Girl, I need a date so I can enjoy Valentine’s Day.
All comments I’ve heard this week. Seems like most people are simply caught up in trying to do the MOST on one day just to keep up appearances. The number of likes you get on social media doesn’t mean a thing if your relationship isn’t what you purport it to be and more importantly, your dating/relationship status shouldn’t define rather or not you can actually enjoy the day.
As for me, I’m still planning, so we’ll see how things pan out this weekend but one thing’s for sure. In all my ‘over the top’ celebratory ways, I won’t feel less than if things don’t go exactly as I’d hoped and this one day certainly isn’t the determining factor of our relationship because expressions of our love for one another are shown on a daily basis.
That’s how it’s supposed to be!
