Let’s just assume…

Valentine’s Day is about love in every shape, size, and form.

Better than the cheesiness we’ve been sold, isn’t it?

This is what love looks like to me today.

Bearing that in mind, here’s a short love letter where I tell you what’s really happening around these parts.


Dear Valentine,

I decided to embark on the first-ever Beautiful Voyager t-shirt sale. When the shirts landed, seeing everyone together was amazing!

Final tally: 68 shirts sold!

Then a crazy thing happened.

Because of it, I was forced to confront my inner customer service avoidant demons.

(Silver lining: the shirts are now on sale again for only 10 more days, so if you want one…now’s the time.)

Getting to write to you — and for you — is an honor and a privilege.

Thank you for being my Valentines.

Those are little Snapchat leaves around my nose btw. Nothing weird happening there.
