So today’s the day that heart-shaped sentiment will be shoved down our collective throat. Millions of dollars worth of flowers, chocolates, and teddy bears will be purchased and delivered. All of the television shows will have some kind of theme of romance.
Valentine’s Day again. Yuck.
Despite the commercial nature of February 14, I hope today is a beautiful day for you regardless of how you spend it.
I’m a big believer in also being my own Valentine, so better believe that I’m psyched to see what red and pink heart shaped gift boxes go on sale at Sephora tomorrow!
To me, Valentine’s is a great day to recognize the people you hold dear who you maybe don’t tell every day. It’s a wonderful time to stop, appreciate, and let someone know how much they mean to you. Today, it’s your day.
It occurs to me — you all know so much about me, but I know very little about most of you. Partially inspired by the homegirl Nichelle, I want to get to know all about you today. So lurkers, come on out and introduce yourself!
I want to know where you’re from, what you do, how did you discover Afrobella, and how do you feel about my site? Tell me what you love about it, what you don’t like about it, what you’d like to see more or less of.
This is the first V-Day I’m having with you bellas, and I just want to wish each and every one of you a happy day. I get endless love from you on a daily basis, and that means the world to me. There are so many days that I find myself exhausted, bereft of ideas, and not wanting to write my name much less anything else. But I persevere, and my reward is an inbox overflowing with comments from you all – beautiful, intelligent women of all ethnicities, from all over the world. Oh, and some afrofellas, too!
You keep me afloat on my weightiest days, and I love you for that.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
