I am a hopeless romantic at heart. Growing up in the era of Disney princesses and ‘Happily Ever Afters’, Valentine’s day has always been one of my favorite holidays to celebrate love. However, when you’re single, sometimes Valentine’s Day can seem a little lackluster. It doesn’t have to be! This year, I’m aiming not to get lost in the romanticism of the holiday, but to celebrate true love by showing love to myself.
Here are 5 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Single and Happy:
1. Buy Your Favorite Treats
They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend…and this is true. But candies are certainly the next best thing. This year, I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day be getting a few of my favorite treats: Peeps and Conversation Hearts.
These candies tend to get a lot of hate, but how could you not love them? When I was little, I would try to line up the candied hearts to create complete sentences. Now at 28, I still find myself using these candies to affirmations of self-acceptance and love.
Peeps are just my guilty pleasure…
