Hello sweethearts! I hope this year is treating you well so far. Being that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day–regardless of whether you have someone to celebrate with or not–I figured I would share some thoughts.
First of all, googly-eyed love-birds and solitary cynics alike can appreciate the value of love. Now, not everyone has to buy into the red and pink wonderland of chocolates and greeting cards, but most people can say they have someone in their life that they love.
Personally, I love my sisters more than anyone in the world, so on this pseudo-holiday, I will send them some embarrassing public display of my affection. Do people still send singing telegrams? That could work.
What are you planning on doing for those you care about? This past weekend at the Maritime Museum, we hosted a Sweetheart Sail around the San Diego Bay. Couples climbed aboard for a three hour scenic tour of the bay, while enjoying champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Sounds romantic to me.
If you need some ideas, my advice is–think outside of the box. I love the idea of going sailing or enjoying an adventure together. Unfortunately our Sweetheart Sail has come and gone, but if you missed it, you can join in the fun next year.
This year I will be participating in a poetry slam night in lieu of traditional Valentine’s activities. Regardless of what you do, have fun, and remember–flowers are always appreciated (unless your sweetheart is allergic)!
