Thank you for your nice comment and Happy Birthday, Mia! Valentine’s Day is special to us at Secret Serendipty. We say we don’t need a special day to celebrate the love but yes we do need a day to celebrate love in a special way!!!!! A special home-cooked meal can be so much more romantic than going out to eat at a super busy restaurant. It’s a day to focus on positives, like how much you love someone that is in your life, whether it’s a romantic partner, a best friend, parents or your pet. Valentine’s Day is also a perfect excuse to treat yourself. You deserve a present on Valentine’s Day, and it doesn’t need to come from someone else for it to be awesome. Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples, either. If you find yourself without someone to spend the day with, buy your favorite wine, candy, or meal, and keep it all to yourself. You won’t have to give up a single one of your fries, or a drop of your wine. Whatever you decide to do, do it with a smile and lots of gratitude.
