I am a SUCKER for Valentine’s Day!
It makes me smile whenever I see couples being romantic. Everything just seems better and happier on this day of the year. By now you must have booked a romantic dinner date or ordered flowers or chocolates to be delivered to her office. If not, what are you waiting for?
