My husband and I have never really made a very big deal of Valentine's Day. Mainly because we both feel that love isn't about a single day when you take time out to say 'I love you'. It's about making that effort every day. And on a very personal level, Valentine's Day took on a … Continue reading Be Your Own Valentine. Love Yourself.
