Valentine’s day is around the corner, love is in the air, the birds are singing and everything smells like roses. Maybe not everything if you have kids, but we can always be hopeful.
I love reading lists of things to do on Valentine’s Day, but some of the suggestions are more suited to the younger crowd. The ones without kids and responsibilities. I may sound like a Scrooge, but I long for days filled with red roses, dark chocolate and lazy mornings in bed. I just have to take all these lists with a bit of cynicism, they always sound like they are written by hopeful romantic teenagers. I wish they would ask real woman, with kids, what they would like for Valentines.
Here’s a look at a few suggestions found on these lists.
