Has the Love Bug Bitten You Yet?

I'll admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of Valentine's day in it's traditional form. It tends to put undue pressure on all of us to either be in a perfect relationship or to reassess our singlehood, if single. I think, instead, we should celebrate love in any form we prefer.

If you're single, celebrate it by treating yourself to a class or buying something you've been wanting for a while. Celebrate yourself and take the time to appreciate all that you do. If you're in a relationship, take the time to tell your signifigant other why they mean so much to you. Maybe even write it in a letter. It's so easy to fall into a Valentine's rut, but if you really focus on celebrating love, this holiday can be beautiful.

If you do want to give a Valentine's gift to a signifigant other or even to yourself, you might enjoy one of the Valentine's-themed pieces of jewelry I've created. They are all under $50 each, ready to ship and can be gift wrapped upon request. Check them out at my Etsy shop.
