So I’m sort of on the fence about Valentine’s Day. It could be due to the fact that I’m unattached at the moment and everyone else around me has someone special, but I don’t think my dislike of chocolate and roses, two main staples of this Hallmark holiday, helps.
Still when this holiday rolls around, I can’t help but be a little inspired by all of the craftiness you see in the blogosphere, not to mention the increase in popularity of things to do for
(For those who may be confused: Galentine’s Day is the day where you celebrate your girlfriends. As per Parks & Recreation, where it’s said to have originated, it is celebrated on the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13th.)
Appreciation – It Doesn’t Have to be Reserved for February
I love to show those I care about how much I appreciate them, and while I may not get on the whole Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day bandwagon – and neither should you if it’s not your thing – I thought perhaps I’d turn this into more a heart-themed appreciation post.
I’ve come across some great homemade ideas over the years. So why not skip the card aisle this year and show your love and/or appreciation on February 13th OR February 14th (as we’ve become
trained apt to do) or just do these at any time. Just saying… break the mold once in a while. Appreciation is a year-round thing. 🙂
