My Valentine

Valentine's Day has always been a day that we celebrate love. 
 
I am not one to start traditions but for the past few years, I have been making sure to give myself a valentine present and show myself some love which usually consists of a wonderful day of being pampered at the spa.
 
There is nothing like a hot stone massage that you can just lay back and enjoy the pressures of. I can truly say that after all the hustling and bustling through life,  those few seconds of elevated joy seem so necessary and the words ring true even after four years of her death, that Whitney Houston sang, I have been, "Saving All My Love For You."
 
Then there are the traditions of sharing time and giving gifts to others. I rather put a little bit of myself and my work and creative juices into a gift hoping that people will receive what to me seems a little bit more personal. Like a few years back when I wrote the song Valentino for my Valentine. We had been dating for about a year and I thought it was appropriate. You can check it out if you'd like on Soundcloud. Here is the link: Valentino by Stephanie Jeannot

 
 
Today, I vividly desire to bear fruits of love and connect with
you.  Celebrating life, love and breaking bread together with you
to tell you thank you for all your humble support. Shout out to all you
beautiful people out there who share with me your spiritual love.
 
Whether you enjoy a tryst under the shade of your roof or beyond, may you
be graced with a soothing song. May the reflections of love touch you and the
sweet air of music bring you calm.
 
And with that in mind and keeping with the harmony of Valentine's Day,
I dedicate this cover of My Funny Valentine to you. https://youtu.be/arfSAMsHyk8

 


 
Thank you for checking out my blogpost everybody and for allowing me to share my gifts with you!
With much admiration,
 
Stephanie Jeannot

  2. Very nice all around.
    You have to take care of you before you can take care of anyone else.

    1. That's right. I have learned in life that if you do not love yourself, that leaves room for no one else to love you either. Thanks for the comment Naila.

  3. I love the idea of treating ourselves to something special on Valentine's Day. Why do we put so much pressure on others to dote on us for that day? We can take care of ourselves too. :)

    1. That's right. We have to take care of and love ourselves the way we want and expect others to. It is very important Mamakat. Thank you for the comment and the writing prompt.
