Is it possible that we are thriving as much as we are surviving? Eh, always debatable. I'm exhausted and so is Joanna. We are both looking forward to Valentines Day so we can relax in honor of ourselves.
Here's an example of what the perfect Valentines Day looks like to each of us:
Joanna: Alone, on her couch, with a cup of warm tea and wrapped in a blanket. She's reading a book and no one is calling her name or needing anything.
Me (Clea): Alone, in my bathroom, with a bottle of champagne. No one is calling my name because my husband took the kids out to dinner. Don't worry, they promised to bring me home my to-go order!
I just found out that Queen Elizabeth ALSO enjoys drinking champagne every day. My whole outlook on life has changed. Have I been living like a royal this entire time?
Due to this recent discovery, our Valentines Day gift guide is dedicated to treating yourself...just like my royal counterpart.
So let's raise a glass and start with the basics...
