Valentine’s Day can be a funny time of year. Judging from social media over the last few days I have come to the conclusion that it seems to have quite the marmite effect with most people, you either love it or you hate it, or you quite simply couldn’t care less. Personally I like it a lot, I think it is really nice to celebrate with your partner no matter what stage of the relationship you are in. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is extremely important to express your feelings and love throughout the whole year and obviously it should not be left to just one day; I would like to think that goes without saying.
It is true that it has without a doubt been even more commercialised as the years have gone by, however one does not have to fall into the trap of spending a small fortune on gifts. Valentine’s Day is essentially all about love and as J-Lo once told us, love does not cost a thing.
Today’s post was short and sweet, a bit like the day itself really.
The above image is my own coloured version of the design found within the Johanna Basford Secret Garden Colouring Book. If you haven’t heard of these books before and enjoy art and also relaxing then I would highly recommend checking them out.
