Oh my gosh, it feels like I have fallen off the face of the earth for the beginning here of 2012, definitely all with good reasons 🙂
Finally coming up for air & I’m feeling inspired!
I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated our story & there’s much to tell, but bear with me as I skip ahead in celebration of St. Valentine 😉
(I promise to rewind & fill ya in)
The day honoring LOVE is upon us & for the 1st time I’m excited to acknowledge it.
As far back as I can remember, my best friend & I donned all black to show our disdain for the “commercial” holiday ~ sure, yeah that’s what we were protesting 😉 Guaranteed if our prince had shown up on & or around Feb 14th, we’d be more than happy to jump on the red heart bandwagon.
Even as she moved on, got married & started a family, I’ve continued on with the all-black wardrobe tradition.
Well, okay with the exception of the occasional attempt to outsmart the universe with wearing heart decorated tops, jewelry, etc in hopes to convince the powers-that-be that I was ready, willing, & open for love ~ yeah the universe saw right through that ploy…back to all black I went.
Even with all the work I’ve done on myself, my love issues & trying to believe it exists, I still find myself being afraid to get my hopes too high.
I realized this just this evening as I walked in to find a beautiful bouquet sitting in my hotel room
…candles illuminating the whole apartment…
…leading me to the hot bubble bath awaiting me…
Billie Holiday playing in the background, a glass of red & chatting with my love = the BEST way to wind down the day!!! xxox
Here’s to celebrating LOVE!!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
(P.S. I’m wearing leopard today ~ no black!)
