Hello, Valentines

I’m spending Valentine’s Day with me, myself and I.

I love me!

Okay, listen. I was thinking about this earlier, in a weirdly morbid way… I was in an elevator at work, and it was kiiind of making strange noises, and I thought, “Well, if I die now, I’ve lived a good life, I think I’ve helped others, and I’ve been loved.”

Who thinks like that?

Me, I guess. But even thought I knew I was {probably} fine and being ridiculous, I also knew it was true—if I look back to my past, or look forward to my exciting future, I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve accomplished so many things in just 27 years, and so many in just the last couple years: I have a great career that challenges me, I’ve travelled to a lot of eye-opening places, I bought a house, I ran a marathon, I made so many new friends in the past several years. I’m getting married this year!!! I’m happy, and I love myself, and I love my life.

There’s nothing more important than making sure you love yourself, your life, and all the important people in it. Take the time to think on that today.

So happy Valentine’s Day, morbid self. Thank you for helping me realize that damn, life is good.

It was a challenging week at work, albeit successful, so I’m spending a quiet evening at home, relaxing with a [mini] bottle of champagne…

pop champagne! made it to Friday.

I’m in search of a movie to tune in to & turn my brain off. VEG. That is my plan. Then it’s early to bed, early to rise around 5:30am. I’m meeting a large group of running clubbers at 6:30am for a lovely 11-mile run. Woohoo!

What about that fiancé guy? You ask. He is very into dart playing, so he’s participating in a dart tournament all weekend. Leave it to a bunch of dudes to plan a dart tournament on Valentine’s Day weekend. Ha! Truthfully, we never really do anything special for this “holiday” (every day is special enough, right?) so it doesn’t bother me. I’m glad he’ll have a fun [slightly hungover?] weekend!

As for me, I’m off to eat a brownie…

what goes best with champagne? a brownie, of course.

Carb loading? Yeah. That’s it.

Love you, blog readers. Thanks for being a part of this lovely life.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
