Sorry to be yet another valentines day scrooge, but I’m just not that into it. I don’t like the idea of a day that makes anyone feel crap and valentines day is a pretty rubbish one for lots of people. There are lots of ways of showing your love all year round and to all the people you love in your life. I do however quite like the idea of Galentines day. In theory this should be celebrated on Feb 13th, but as it clashed with pancake day, so today is as good as any.
There are some pretty awesome women in my life who I love and appreciate a lot. And I think a day to celebrate friendship is pretty cool. I also have two daughters who I’d like to raise to have happy healthy relationships, but also to know that they don’t need a relationship to be happy. Friendships on the other hand are very important.
So today I’m going to show some appreciation. I am very lucky to have friends who support, encourage and make me laugh a lot. Friends who take 10,000 pictures of my outfits and don’t mind me taking pictures of my food! Friends to discover new places and go on adventures with and friends who share my love of all things vintage. I have a mum who is an amazing role model. I have my daughter Jessica who reminds me the importance of being yourself and Lila who shows me how to be kind and caring. And I have loads of wonderful women who read my blog and make my dream job a reality.
So to all my friends, my daughters, my mum and my readers happy Galentines day!
