Forget the Chocolate, This is What I Really Want for Valentine's Day

Like most women, I can’t wait to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  I am completely in love with the idea of love and romance.

People often make the mistake of only focusing on a specific part of the day and ignoring the rest. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be about the dinner date or anything that may come after it. It should be about the entire day, morning until night.

That being said, I don’t expect a perfect day.  I just want a day to feel special. I want a day where someone I love goes out of their way to make an effort and show me they feel the same.

If you’re struggling with what to get me, here is what I really want:

I want a day of feeling like the most beautiful woman in the world.

I want to feel beautiful from the minute I wake up until the minute I fall asleep. I want to forget all of my self-esteem issues and just see myself the way I hope you see me. 

And most importantly, I want an excuse to show off my new dress that makes me feel amazing.

I want a day where I feel appreciated.

I want to feel loved and important. I want to know that you value me on all days, and that I’m worth making an effort for on this special day. 

I want to know that you took the time to make me feel special instead of just throwing something together last minute. The thought that goes into a gesture means more to me than anything else.

I want a day of not having to question how you feel.

I want to know everything that is on your mind for the whole day. I want to know how you feel about me, what you’re thinking, and everything in between.

It can be an email, texts throughout the day, a letter, anything. I don’t care how you express it; I just don’t want to be left guessing.

I want a day of no drama.

I want a stress-free, peaceful day. I don’t want to argue over some stupid misunderstanding. 

I want to have a smile on my face all day long, and I want you to be the one to put it there.

I want a day free of having to make a decision.

I hate making decisions, and I don’t want to have to make any plans. I don’t want to tell you where we should eat or what we should do.

I want for one day to just be the girl…and do absolutely nothing.
