I’ll be honest, I was never the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. As a kid, I absolutely hated the day. I was overweight, had few friends, and without fail, would only get a few valentines from my classmates. I’ll never forget opening up the valentine’s day mailbox I had created in my 3rd grade class, only to find three valentines… I was heartbroken.
In middle school, I hated the candy grams!! Hated them! At some point in the day, kids would stop into classes delivering candy grams that kids had bought for their friends or crushes. Guess who never got one… womp womp.
OK, now that we’re all depressed, I do have a positive spin to all this. Valentine’s Day always left me feeling lonely, but I’ve learned that my joy comes from the love I receive year round, not just on one day. As an adult, I think Valentine’s Day can be a lot of fun!! I love getting little gifts for my friends, spoiling my husband, and going out to dinner at some point that week.
I also love all of the non-chocolate valentine’s that you can give to your friends, your kid’s classmates, or your co-workers! CyndiBands makes the most adorable Valentine’s Day hair ties, and their packaging is just adorable!
I think the Conversation Hearts hair ties are just about the most adorable thing for girls to give to their girlfriends or for people to give to their co-workers.
