Happy Valentine’s Day!


For all of you love birds, simply enjoy the day together, no matter what you do.  Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a big deal, but it’s important that you show your appreciation for each other.  Even if he doesn’t get you the perfect bouquet of flowers or if she overcooked dinner, it’s the thought that counts.  Use today as an opportunity to show each other how much you mean to each other and how much you care about each other.  Even though you should be doing this on the regular, this is certainly a good excuse to get romantic, so don’t let it fly by.

For those of you who are single, please don’t use today as an excuse to be miserable and play the victim.  Not everyone has a meal on Thanksgiving, or presents on Christmas, or even parents on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, so, naturally, not everyone will have a lover on Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t surrounded by love, too.  Valentine’s Day is also about friendship, family, and love in general.  Appreciate the love you get from your family, your best friends, and yourself.  I’m sure you haven’t been single since your born day and you certainly won’t be single forever, so don’t mope around as you hate on the couples passing you by.  Instead, appreciate the love you do have and have had.  When your romance does come, Valentine’s Day will only be that much sweeter.

Happy Valentine’s Day my loves!
