…then let’s take a deep breath!
This is the last full week leading up to Valentine’s Day. It’s not too late to plan something special for your love. We’ve heard couples say, “Oh, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day – it’s too commercial.” To this comment we say, “How sad!” Not that they choose to not participate in the over- romanticized holiday, but that they choose to not romance their spouse in a way that blesses them.
Imagine if we chose to not celebrate Christmas because of how commercial it has become? We don’t have to participate in the way everyone else does, but we can participate in a way that becomes US. It is OUR tradition, OUR memories which matter to US.
We have enjoyed Valentine’s Day in a way we wouldn’t trade for anything else. What could you and your spouse do to make this a holiday you look forward to because of the memories you’ve made together, rather than, avoiding it at all costs? Don’t miss such a great chance to celebrate the love that is in the air–the love between you and your spouse.
We would love to hear what your plans are–simply comment to this post and let’s share our creativity! Who knows? Your idea may just spark another couple to celebrate in the same way. If you are looking for ideas around Orlando–below is our Mark Your Calendar list.
