I know it isn’t quite february yet, but here’s your personal preparation 😉
self care goodness, intentional acts of kindness, valuing what’s really important, and eating discount chocolate… that’s what should really be happening on valentine’s, am I right?!
even as a married gal, I tend to get valentine’s overwhelm by the amount of romance I’m supposedly supposed to be generating for myself and my man. let’s keep it sweet & simple this year, with an epic countdown that doesn’t care if you’re married, blissfully engaged, new to a relationship, or cuddling with your ten kittens. 😀
so, for the love of all that’s sane & lovely… let’s rock this v-day with tons of generosity, kindness, and actions that make the world a better place.
DAY 1 : buy coffee for the person behind you at starbucks.
DAY 2: treat yourself to some simple self-care (like painting your nails or taking a bubble bath).
DAY 3: don’t say anything negative on social media- only be encouraging.
DAY 4: take a friend out to lunch.
DAY 5: send your mom, sister, friend, or spouse a bouquet of flowers.
DAY 6: go out for your favorite dinner, and give the waitress or waiter a really awesome tip.
DAY 7: write small, encouraging or kind words on strips of pink & red paper, and leave them in public places for strangers to find ❤
DAY 8: make a mini poster of all your favorite verses & quotes about love on a piece of computer or construction paper.
DAY 9: buy your favorite valentine’s candy and share with a friend or SO… or keep it to yourself 😉
DAY 10: watch a cheesy chick flick & play this themed bingo game. add wine and cheese because yum.
DAY 11: meditate on the so not passive nature of Jesus-love. then go share the love!
DAY 12: throw a Galentine’s Day party for all your girls.
DAY 13: mail a hand-written letter to a friend or loved one.
DAY 14: treat yourself to your favorite coffee, wear your favorite outfit, and make a point to love each and every person you come into contact with today… including yourself. ❤
happy valentine’s, lovelies!!
much, much love
