It is that time of year again. Heart-shaped balloons line grocery store aisles, singing cards hum songs of love and the sale of tiny stuffed bears will soon be hitting its annual peak. Valentine’s Day is near. Behind the shapes, colors and sounds is a simple reminder to appreciate the person with whom you share your life.
Simple ways to say ‘I love you’
Rather than spending one day on an extravagant show of affection, consider a series of comparatively small, frequent gestures of love. Most relationships would benefit more from a permanent influx of minor romance than one major romantic event. Here are ten simple ideas to get you started. Consider finding time to surprise your partner with all ten over the course of the month. Then, think about choosing another ten for next month. It is, after all, the day-to-day that determines ultimate happiness and love.
