Happy Valentines Day!

Valentine’s Day is a great time for everyone to feel a little bit of love. It is always such a heartwarming thing to see when you can feel the love around you or between others. Who else can’t contain their excitement when they see something special bloom? It doesn’t have to be limited to humans too, we love seeing animals showing affection to their potential mates or besties. One special pair that we absolutely love are the Sarus Cranes. If you have been with us for a while you will know that we are big fans of these amazing creatures and they even feature in our Bird Life Art collection on our website.
It is well known that Sarus Cranes pair for life. Similar to humans, they exhibit marital love, caring, attachment and bereavement. These wonderful birds are always seen with their partners, whether it is walking, flying, foraging, sleeping and resting. It is known that one of the most wonderful things to see these creatures do is settle down in a new nest to create a family. Once their eggs hatch and the babies are able to walk and fend for themselves, they too will go out in the world ready to fall in love and find their life partner. How adorable is that?
A lot of the time, the focus on Valentine's Day is about sharing love with other people. However this Valentine's day we should all do something for ourselves as self-care and self-love are things that should be celebrated too. Set aside an evening or some time in the day to do something that makes you feel good and lifts your mood. Why not run yourself a beautiful self-care bath with candles and music. Add in some of our essential oils from our wellness range to level up the relaxation and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
There are so many different things you can do for yourself. Read your favourite book, order a takeaway and watch a feel good film, or write some things down that you love about yourself. If you are feeling a little low on Valentine’s Day, just know that you are loved and you are amazing! Spend this day either doing something that makes you happy or with people that make you happy. Equally if there is someone who means a lot to you. Tell them! Let them know that they make you happy and that you love them. You never know how much someone may need to hear that.
Whether you are spending the day with your partner, your family, friends or a self care evening on your own we hope you have a wonderful time.
Happy Valentine’s Day, love from Curated Pieces!!
