Who hasn’t imagined that they are a Humphrey Bogart or an Ingrid Bergman, a Patrick Swayze or a Jennifer Gray, a Tom Hanks, or a Meg Ryan, or maybe a Clark Gable or a Vivian Leigh. All of these iconic screen couples certainly went through many trials and tribulations to be together, even in the movies life was never easy. But oh how much we loved them.
No relationship is ever perfect, each one has to be nurtured to be given the opportunity to grow. We all get so caught up in our every day lives that it is easy to forget this.
Valentines Day is a good opportunity to rekindle that spark, to go weak at the knees and to feel the butterflies in the tummy that you felt when you first met. To show each other how much you appreciate the little things in life. The touch on the shoulder, the look in the eyes.
On February 14, plan something special, It doesn’t have to be a day of grand gestures but instead a day to remember.
Why not have a romantic movie night with your loved one, dim the lights, or better still light some candles, throw some cushions on the floor, pour a couple of glasses of wine and nibble on some cheese or chocolate. All while watching the old classics starring the famous couples above.
Or you can book that favourite restaurant for either breakfast, lunch or dinner, take a stroll in the moonlight, go to your favourite bar and listen to some music, or take the family out for a picnic. The possibilities are endless.
For a bit of fun, Create your first date all over again, this would make the day or night very special indeed. Do you remember where you were and how you felt on that night?
Remember, Valentine’s Day is not necessarily about gifts and presents. It is about expressing your love for your other half, and Just enjoy the time you have with each other.
Whatever you choose to do have fun!.
“Loved you once, love you still,
Loved you then, and always will.”
