Hey There Beautiful

Before starting this blog, I wasn’t a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Even though I pine over things with delicate little hearts (forgive me future child for your nursery decor) and cry almost every single time I read Modern Love in the Times – I’ve always felt like V-Day was more about consumerism than cupid.

But two years ago, I decided to challenge you — yes, you! — to write a different kind of Valentine. Not one you’d give to your crush or husband or anyone. But instead, one that’s written to you. Taken or single, the day isn’t about chocolates and dinner dates or wondering if you’ll be the only one in the office who wasn’t sent flowers…. it’s about self-love. So why not count all the ways you love, you?

Because you’re pretty great.

And beautiful. And incredibly brave and strong. Determined and kind-hearted. Forgiving and a free spirit full of charm, wit and dreams. You are all of these things — and you deserve to read it.

I’m excited to announce the third edition of Valentine’s To Yourself on Confessions of a Love Addict. It’s really simple — click this link and write a letter of love from you to you. If you’re a blogger and you want me to link back, I will. If you want to be anonymous, that’s cool, too. I’ll publish them all. (Just like I did in 2011 and in 2012).

So, hey there beautiful — go ahead and get started. It’ll take you weeks to list everything that’s great about you…

  1. I love this idea! I definitely wrote a letter and submitted it. My husband and I normally don’t even celebrate Valentine’s Day, but for some reason this year I’ve been itching to. Maybe we’ll put the kids to bed early and have a living room date! ;)

  3. That’s such a great idea! The funny thing is I’ve been with my hubby just about 10 years and we’ve only celebrated Valentine’s Day once and they we decided it was a holiday made up by either the flower or chocolate industries. Everything cost twice as much to buy that day, reservations are a nightmare and you feel guilty if you don’t do anything :special.” So we decided from that day forward that would be our first and only Vday and we would make every day special and go out on dates at least once a week and make each other feel special every day. 10 years of that and still going strong. Vday will come and go and beside all the blogging about it, I don’t even think I’ll notice :).
