Will You Be My Valentine?

It’s that time of year, when roses are sent, candy is bought, and love is being made.  Many singles have probably searched the last few months for a date. The stores have advertised it since Christmas and now it’s here.

Personally, I’m not a fan of the holiday because I truly believe love should be shown throughout the year, not just on one day.  But, I do think it’s a good holiday for new couples that are fresh on the dating scene. It’s allows them to break the ice and wow the other person.

To help keep the spark in our love life, each year my husband and I always ask to be each other Valentine.  It’s just a simple gesture, and pretty much all we do for the “holiday”.

This year, has been a world wind.  We’ve moved to another state, started new jobs, got married, so whenever we can just sit back and relax, we milk the opportunity.  The remote was include as a “surrender” to the typical “argument”.  I’m watching something and he comes in a turns to football.  Instead of “fussing”, I gave in for the sake of LOVE 🙂

Alright lovebirds, remember it’s the simple things that go a long way.  Love should be shown year round, and pure love is free!

Until Next Time,
