Valentines Day is around the corner. Seasonal isles at the grocery store are stocking the shelves more often everyday. There are lots of people who freak out about their plans for that night. What they are going to get their loved one?? Chocolate?? Diamonds?? ( they are a girl's best friend ;) ) What they are going to cook for dinner?? Where they are going OUT for dinner??
But sometimes we don't need all the hustle and bustle that February 14th has to offer. Sometimes we don't need the commercialism of it all. How about some good ole' fashion "good deeds"? Some more of the usual "I love you's" during the day?
Valentines Day shouldn't put people into a panic. It shouldn't stress you out. It SHOULD be full of caring, pretty much like what every single day should be like.
So some simple ways to say I LOVE YOU...
<3 Surprise him at work or school with a homemade lunch and eat it together in between two of his classes.
<3 Organize his dresser drawers. In a way where he can find what shirt he may be looking for.
<3 Watching a movie that night that he likes and one he maybe has not seen in while.
<3 Has it been awhile since some "alone" time together?? A little evening delight. ;)
<3 Leave some notes in the car when he drives to work.
<3 Have the house clean by the time she gets home from work or school.
<3 If she has been stressed out lately, a nice FULL body massage.
<3 Watching a chick flick that she really enjoys.
<3 Breakfast in bed is always fun.
<3 Leave a love note for her if you leave before she gets up.
<3 Take her out somewhere where you can see the stars and turn music up in the car and dance outside under that stars
Now I'm definitely not saying I'm against the flowers and chocolate. I'm all for that, but sometimes it's the simple gestures that mean the most.
This is the most adorable video. I love it!
