Life before Simon, Valentines day was really important to me. I would even book the day off work to ensure I had the whole day to be worshipped like a princess. Little disclaimer here. My previous boyfriends didn’t seem to get the Princess memo and I was often left sat at home with them clueless as to what day it even was. Then there were the times I was single on Valentines day and it would kill me that everyone was in love (also read as ‘everyone was eating at nice restaurants’) on this one magical day.
Simon showed me the light. I now no longer care about Valentines day. Normally the week before we have the ‘are we bothering?’ chat. If my bank balance is healthy its a hell yeah! Otherwise I couldn’t care less. I am fairly poor at buying ‘just because’ gifts so it is nice to have an annual nudge to show Si I love him.
Sensing that this year will be another ‘lets not bother one’ and also sensing I might get a little bit of FOMO seeing instagram awash with Jo Malone fragrance and ‘because he’s my boo’ captions, I have put together the gift guide we should be shopping for ourselves.
Do you go all out for Valentines day or is it just another day?
