It’s about that time of year again, y’all. All hearts and roses. Ideas of true love and being together forever.
This will be the first time in 20 years that I’m single on Valentine’s Day. That’s not so much of a huge deal to me as you would think because as I’ve said before, my daughter is the love of my life, and I’ve got quite a surprise planned for her.
However, on the romantic side of things, there’s no one to speak of in regards to love and soulmates and all that jazz. So, like Lizzo, I’m gonna be my own soulmate. This year, Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating ME and self love and self care.
First it will start with a spa day – a nice massage followed up by a mani-pedi. I was even thinking of getting some waxing done, but ugh, I don’t think I can go there. Next, I will go shopping – not for anything in particular, but looking for anything that feels nice against my skin. I will wrap it all up with making myself a special dinner and enjoying a bottle of merlot. Ah, heaven.
Of course, I do have to re-institute the annual watching of the horror movie “Valentine” with David Boreanaz. With watching it, you would think I’m bitter, but ah, it’s for the eye candy.
Happy V-Day, y’all – and remember, you can’t love anyone else if you don’t love yourself first.
