It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The countdown says 2 days, and I am so excited! It’s definitely strange that I feel so excited for something that happens literally every year and that shouldn’t be that big of a deal for my relationship. My husband and I have been together for almost 7 years and married for a little over half a year, so many people tend to assume that we’re “over” these kinds of holidays by now. But I’m actually more excited for this Valentine’s Day than I have been for a lot of others; this is our first one as a married couple! I can honestly say that I’m so excited to spend my first Valentine’s Day with my man as a married woman.
I’m not sure exactly what we’ll be doing yet; we may be going out some place, but no concrete plans have been decided. I honestly would be a-okay with staying at home and just enjoying each other’s company. Maybe have a stay-in movie date night? Either way, I know that I’ll be with my husband on Thursday evening, making sure that my phone is away and that he has my full attention. Because that’s what making time for each other really means. It means being fully present in the moment with your partner and being attentive to their needs and wishes. And I know he feels the exact same way.
P.S.: If you’re interested in any Valentine’s Day photo shoots, let me know as soon as possible! I’m dishing out 40% discounts for Valentine’s Day portraits and recreational photo shoots, but the deal ends on February 28th. This could be the perfect gift!
