Valentine’s Day – High Expectations

Yay…My first blog post. I am so excited to share my journey with you.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone.

I had a conversation with my mum yesterday telling her how excited I used to be about Valentine’s day. When I was younger, I would be counting down the days to February 14th, Hoping all the guys that liked me would drop chocolates, cakes, perfumes,etc.

February 14th 2014, I was in Los Angeles with my husband (was my boyfriend then) and I was praying and hoping he was going to propose as he surprised me with the trip. I was so expectant and he shocked me and didn’t propose (LOL). I remember being nice to him days before and after I didn’t get the ring, I started to be mean… Fast forward, he proposed in Nigeria March 22, 2014.

IMG_1613Valentine’s day puts pressure on people in my opinion and it’s either a good or bad day based on your relationship status. The interpretation of love nowadays is “When I say I love you, you must give me something in return” which is wrong. I advise, love yourself and treat yourself if you are single. If you are married, you can either take your spouse for a romantic dinner or just sit home and give your spouse a foot rub. Don’t put pressure on yourself because you want to make someone happy. Don’t go break the bank because you want the person to be pleased with you. Simple appreciation without any monetary value attached can go a long way.

So ladies and gents, any high expectations today, Feb 14th 2016. Or what high expectations did you have for previous valentine’s day?
