Catching Feelings

This time of year has me seeing red. Not because of my love life, no no that’s great! I highly recommend marriage, it’s truly the best adventure I’ve ever been on. I just mean there’s literally red and hearts in everything i’m seeing. From the ads i’m being served on YouTube and Bravo (my platforms of choice), to my Instagram newsfeed, it's all red everywhere. When I open up IG, I’m instantly bombarded with slinky red dresses, burgundy #OOTDs and influencers holding heart-shaped balloons. So i’ve decided to just cave in, and dive into all the feelings.

So below, in no particular order, are the ways I will be enjoying all of the mushy, butterfly-inducing moments I can possibly handle in the month of February:

  1. Watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix — this teenage romance with a Shakespearean twist didn’t become an overnight cult-classic for no reason (part of that reason is actually the number of times I have viewed/downloaded/streamed/binged it). I can’t wait for the sequel to be released. The book series is super cute too.

  2. Reading Pride and Prejudice — this Jane Austen novel has struck an emotional chord for readers since it was first published in January 1813. Just think, Mr. Darcy has been causing women to swoon for about 206 Valentines.

  3. Making homemade Valentines — creating art always provides a great way to de-stress and unwind, but when it blesses someone, that just makes it all the sweeter.

  4. Eating dark chocolate — no explanation needed, it’s delicious.

  5. Enjoying a frivolous activity or relaxing moment (or 60) — fellow mommas, this ones for you. We work long (sometimes thankless) days and most of the time we’re too hard on ourselves. So enjoy a bubble bath, a silly episode of that show you love or let your S/O know you are sleeping in this Saturday, and direct your munchkin(s) to the opposite side of the bed once the weekend rolls around. I give you permission.

That’s all for now beauties! What’s your favorite way to celebrate Valentines Day? Drop a comment below. XOXO
