I for one think that to have one day to tell the people you care about how much you love them is nothing more than an opportunity for stores to raise the price of flowers and chocolates to make up for the 364 other days when we don’t give our loved ones a special something to brighten up their day.
Don’t get me wrong; I think having a day dedicated to Love is a great idea, but I believe that telling the people in your life how much you care about them should not just fall on Valentine’s Day.
So to those of you who felt the pressure to go out and pay more for flowers and chocolates to bestow on your loved ones… I have an idea for you.
Save some money and wait for all of the Valentine’s Day Hype to wear off. Then give the people in your life a box of divine chocolates or a beautiful floral arrangement when they least expect it.
I could be wrong on this, but chocolate tastes wonderful and melts in your mouth any day of the year, and flowers are always appreciated, especially on a day when you least expect it.
Much love to my husband, kids, and Louie (the family dog) — all of whom make every day Valentine’s Day!
