Valentine's Day is a few days away. You have probably already made your reservations, ordered flowers, reserved hotel suites, and decided what to wear. If this is your first Valentine's Day together as a couple, you should be excited about the lasting memories you will create.
Although you may see many online postings lamenting the commercialization of this day, and forlorn postings of those who find themselves alone, Valentine's Day is about expressing love. It does not mean that you should not express love everyday. It is just a designated day to have the spotlight shown on your love and to get a gift. Who doesn't like gifts?
Valentine's Day can be a signature day in the lives of many couples. There are quite a few who become engaged, exchange vows, and celebrate wedding anniversaries on Valentine's Day. Love is a beautiful thing, no matter how or when you celebrate it.
