I love that we have one special day of the year for romantic rituals, but at our house, we have a pact to keep our Valentine’s Day celebrations simple. I think Valentine’s Day should be…
Chocolate, diamond necklaces, and red roses are wonderful, but thoughtful little gifts can be pretty great also. The flames of passion are kept alive by communication, compromise, generosity of spirit and never taking each other for granted.
Cards and Candy
When I was growing up, it was a tradition for each child in my classroom to share a simple Valentine’s card and those Be Mine and Kiss Me candy hearts with every other student. Our candy and paper hugs, hearts, and flowers were not about romantic love, and what a beautiful thing!
Wishing You Much Love on this Valentine’s Day!
Everybody needs love, every day! Whether you’re celebrating with a romantic partner, sharing a box of chocolate with a friend, or cuddling a furry companion, I wish you much love today and every day!
“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
