Even though I have spent the majority of my Valentine's Days as a single gal, I've always sort of liked this holiday. I mean, any excuse to eat candy and wear pink sort of has my name written all over it. I stayed really busy last year (and I was quasi-dating someone at the time), so I wasn't all that bummed out. But I've been very aware of it this year. It's made me sadder than I care to admit. I experienced some really nice Valentine's Days in my last relationship, and if I'm being honest, it's still a little bit hard to accept that that particular chapter in my life is over. I know there will be a point where I'm with someone way better for me and will forget all about February 14ths of relationships past... but for now, I'm still kind of nostalgic for them and feel a little blue this Valentine's Day. Which is why I'm very glad that ice cream was invented.
I mentioned in my last post that you would be seeing my other pink coat today. I'm a total coat fanatic, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. It's so warm and cute! It's probably not as flattering as some of my other coats, but feeling like a pink ball of fluff is never a bad thing (in my opinion, anyway). I couldn't figure out what to wear with this coat at first because it's such a statement piece, but then I remembered I hadn't worn this Nishe dress since the summertime, and I liked the idea of incorporating red, pink and white into my outfit for today.
I'm thankful that I won't have a ton of time to dwell on my stint in singledom today, since I have to work and have a performance of my show tonight. In other circumstances, that might be a total bummer, but I definitely need something to occupy my mind (and keep me from eating my weight in Reese's peanut butter hearts). Our shows have gone well so far and the response has been overwhelmingly positive, and I've really enjoyed working on music that isn't so typically musical-theatre-y. I love that too, of course, but a change does a person good. I need to remember that.
