First off, this isn’t a post in a pretty pink dress, or a red lip, or even a cute valentines Tee. It’s just me, literally me in my element. I want to change things up a bit, of course I love posting new outfits I think you will enjoy, or giving you tips and tricks on packing lists, but honestly, we all know there are lots of people who do the same. I want to be honest from here on out and give you little tastes of my life, and in this season ya girl is single. So, no, i didn’t decide to do a valentines post of a cute date night outfit, but what I am doing is showing you how I spent it and what makes me happy (see cover photo of doughnuts for an image of my first true love).
I decided this Valentine’s Day I wanted to spend it with people I love and people that make me happy, friends and family. That’s what matters most to me in this world, and a weekend with them is something I wouldn’t pass up. Autumn and I took the 5 hour trip down to Carolina Beach to get away from the LU Couples, and spend time eating doughnuts, playing cards with my grandparents, posting WAY too many snaps of a very entertaining 8 year old cousin, and stopping at some of my favorite places.
I have found SO much comfort in knowing I am in this place in my life for a reason. I’m not hunting for something to make me “happier” or something to “fulfill” me, trust me it doesn’t work. I am happy knowing my family is something to cherish, I am happy knowing I have friends I can count on, I am happy knowing that maple bacon doughnuts exist(yes, its true), and I am happy knowing I wouldn’t want anything else. This is me, it’s what makes me.
You don’t have to look far to have something to be grateful for. I am grateful for the season of life I am in, for the places I get to go, and the people I get to be around. I wouldn’t trade it. So, don’t feel bad for yourself this month single peeps, make it another one you thrive in.
