Spending V-Day as a Single Lady?

Hi ladies! It's me, SBR, your resident redheaded Baltimore single lady. 

I'm here to talk all things Valentines Day, and give some suggestions if you are single on how to make the most of this day.
Valentines Day is actually one of my FAVORITE holidays! Because my dad made it so much about his gifts to me when he was alive, and my mom as well, I've always seen it more as a day for gifts, candy and showing those around you that you care. I've never really seen it as a purely "significant other" holiday. 
That definitely helps. 

A word:
Yes. Sure. It's another "hallmark" holiday, but who cares? 
To me- it's just another chance to tell those I care about- that I really care.
Should you tell them every day? Sure. 
But why not have a special day for fun too?
B* don't kill my candy hearts vibe....please.
We all need more LOVE!

Okay moving right along...

Here are 5 things you can do as a single lady on V Day to make it a happy day:

1. Celebrate your single lady friends! 
Grab them something small, write a note, tell them you care, go to happy hour (there's a good one at the Charles Thursday ladies), and spend time laughing.

2. Celebrate YOU
A friend of mine at the office is taking the day off of work, drinking wine, baking cookies, and having a real self care day. Sounds like a great plan to me. 

3. Check out local events like a cooking class. (oooo la la)
I've noticed several cooking classes in the area here, I'm sure there are some where you live too. Learn a new skill to share with your friends, and impress potential dates later.
Oh you can make french macarons? Wife material.

4. Plan a special date for your parents. 
Surprise them- tell mom it was from dad, and dad it was from mom. Now that is a real cupid at work.  I used to do this for every holiday as my dad's "assistant" ha. This can also work for friends who are couples, siblings, etc. 

5. Do a random act of kindness.
There is always so much opportunity for this, and this is a day of love right? Make someone's day better, you never know what they may be going through. 

Think you will do these?
Let me know if you do!

  1. There are a handful of fascinating points at some point in this article but I don’t know if these center to heart. There’s some validity but I’m going to take hold opinion until I consider it further. Great article , thanks and then we want far more! Combined with FeedBurner likewise
