    10 Novel Ideas for Valentine’s Day

    For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
    It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

    – Judy Garland

    Love isn’t a one day event. It courses through our beings as sure as oxygen fills our lungs. Even
    though love should be expressed every day of the year, it is easy to get caught up with the day-to-day
    and forget what matters most. February 14 which has been designated as Valentine’s Day gives us the
    opportunity to reconnect with our loved ones. This year, dare to be unconventional and shower your
    partner with the gift of presence instead of presents on Valentine’s Day.
