What Are You This Valentine’s Day?

Valentines Day

This Valentine’s Day was the first time I have ever celebrated Valentine’s Day with someone, and I was of course ecstatic. My boyfriend on the other hand was not so into the “Valentine’s Day spirit”.

I personally LOVE Valentine’s Day not only because it is the day of celebrating love and I am in love, but because the day radiates happiness, and if you read my “About me” page, you would see that I believe in positivity and happiness. This day emits love, happiness and joy.  

Despite me and my feelings towards Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend thinks it is a money making scheme. A day where businesses spend hundreds of rands on advertising to get as many sales as possible.
