Valentine's Day - A Day for Love

Nothing says I love You like flowers, candy and a good book. Of course, you can add a candlelight dinner, jewelry, a massage, and my favorite, sharing a hot tub together - WOW.

Isn't it great that we are all so different and enjoy various things. As I talked with my friends each of them had distinctive ideas about what they wanted for this Valentine's day. One said she'd love to take a walk with her special someone, hold hands, and enjoy the out doors together. Another said it thrilled her to have her husband make her a homecooked meal with her favorite foods - succulent pork roast, garlic mashed potatoes and chocolate for desert. When I asked her what type of chocolate, she anwered any kind will do. I laughed because she's a girl after my own heart. Give me chocolate and I'm happy. Another friend told me she loved it when her partner brushed her hair. She said it sent tingling sensations from her head to her toes.

There's so many ways to express your love - from a romantic weekend getaway to riding in a convertible with your hair blowing in the wind or simply cuddling up together and enjoying a crackling fire.

Whatever your favorite, take the time to say I love you to that special person in your life. Happy Valentine's Day!
