It never fails. Every year after Christmas and New Years I feel a little sad at the reality that the so called “holiday season” has passed. I feel depressed as I take down holiday lights and decorations that made the apartment look so festive and special. It really is my favorite time of the year, and I always feel emotional as another year ends and we begin the long stretch between January and October, where there is hardly a holiday to be found.
But then I remember, there is Valentine’s Day! And sure, I know it’s one of those silly holidays that holds no bigger purpose than to sell cards and flowers, but I do enjoy decorating for Valentine’s Day! It’s the prospect of pink hearts, red doilies and girlie flowers that lifts me from my post-holiday-depression and gets me excited for another year of festivities! So, despite it being a bit early, I have already begun to decorate for the occasion….The boy thinks I am crazy, and I suppose I have no choice but to agree!
P.S. This year we have a wonderful Valentine’s Day date already in the works~ We are getting to witness my brother getting married! I love weddings. Couldn’t ask for a more romantic date!
