For my first installment: My Valentine's outfit. I’m quite aware of the essential commercialism at the heart of St. Valentine’s Day in North America. Despite this fact, I’m sweet on the idea of doing something special for those you hold dear, even if it’s just a bit of me time. Last Valentine’s Day I was flying solo, and it was the best V-Day! I made myself nachos, put on my favourite movie, and parked it on the couch. It showed me that it’s not impossible to have a great Valentine all by myself.
This year was much the same, a lovely evening indeed. My sweetheart made me spaghetti and homemade meatballs (the way to my heart is through my stomach...or my closet) and I fell promptly asleep. I'm a terrible date, but I felt truly cared for. No over-the-top dates, no extravagant gifts, just a night in with someone that I enjoy spending time with. Now that's what I call a perfect V-Day!
Since I’ve been feeling particularly lovey-dovey lately, I went head over heels with a kitschy Valentine’s theme this year. It’s probably the last time I will do something so over-the-top, but it was fun to have Cupid’s Arrow stuck on my head.
