Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day, the most romantic day of the year, February 14th, is only a few days away now and this year it falls on a Sunday. Just thinking about this, when was the last time Valentine's Day fell on a Sunday? I must try to work this out? Anyway, we all know that Valentine's Day is a day of hearts and arrows, cupid, roses and chocolates, or if you're really lucky, perhaps something a little more extravagent like a new piece of jewelry. Regardless, it's a day when lovers, family members and good friends exchange Valentine gifts as tokens of love. Lovers will celebrate by expressing love to their sweethearts with an exchange of cards or love notes and simple gifts such as fresh flowers usually roses, and/or choclates, yummie :) Couples also plan out romantic getaways or Valentine parties to celebrate Valentine's Day romantically.

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Valentine's Day Movie

OK but what are your plans for Valentine's Day? Is it a hot date or a night out with the girls? I've been looking for something different this year and after seeing the trailer I'm thinking of making it a day out with the beau and seeing Valentine’s Day, the perfect date movie which comes out this Friday, February 12. The Valentine's Day movie follows the intertwining storylines of a group of couples and singles in Los Angeles as they find their way through love and romance over the course of one Valentine's Day.

Directed by Gary Marshall, the director of "Pretty Woman" and “Runaway Bride,” this rom-com film has a big cast of well-known and really good actors including Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Foxx, and Julia Roberts. Valentine's Day opens nationwide this Friday, February 12. I can't wait and if you have nothing special to do this Valentine's day then do go see this movie.

Whatever you do, have a beautiful Valentine's day this Sunday, it should be fun.
