Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{February 14, 2007}   Happy Valentine’s Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day for love and romance. Millions of women hoping he’ll do something special. Millions of men praying to get it right. That’s just too much stress and a set up for disappointment. It’s become a hallmark holiday filled with sentimental greeting cards, buckets of flowers, cuddly stuffed animals, heart-shaped chocolates, fancy dinners out and little velvet jewelry boxes. 

I say forget all the commercialism and get down to the basics. A homemade treat or handmade card means so much more than expensive flowers, candy and jewelry. Take a little extra time today to show those you love they are appreciated. That’s all the day requires, a bit of extra special attention gifted to loved ones. 

One of my most favorite memories of Valentine’s Day involved a personal handwritten note and a sunset stroll on the beach. You don’t have to spend tons of money to make is a wonderful day. Just wear your heart on your sleeve, give in to a bit of romance and let the rest take care of itself.

Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day!

I agree, Nic. It’s good to get back to basics. All I want is to spend some quality time with my hubby. That’s what it’s all about. Although, I wouldn’t turn down chocolate. *g*

Gotta love a holiday that encourages the consumption of chocolate. 😉
