Hey baby cakes!! Before I get started, I want to first say that yesterday was my 30th Birthday!! Woot Woot…AARP here I come! Lol. It was a very chill day + my bf says that he has a surprise of some sort for me to celebrate my bday so we will see what happens! Also, Bday haul video coming soon!!
Moving right along….
February, the month of Black History + Love…Ermmm, why is this limited to a month? Shouldn’t Black History + Love be celebrated, studied, showed all year around or is that just me? *side eye*
Anyhoo, there are so many post I see on Facebook + comments I hear from people saying…”I better get this, or we better do that for Valentine’s day”. I’m sorry, but it’s just not that important to me! Is Valentine’s day going to feed, clothe, support + provide jobs for the needy? If not, then I’m not worried about it.
My bf + I have been together slightly over a year now + decided we will not celebrate Vday in the traditional way because we love each other + give each other things all year around. We also decided that we will have a tradition (started last year lol) where we get a bottle of wine, a huge platter of 7 layer dip, a bag of tortilla chips + watch an awesome movie! That’s bliss. No gifts, candy or anything Vday only based…A usual day!
The money that I would have spent, I can donate to an organization I support. I like this idea soooo much more! What do you guys think??
Until Next Time…
