And I’ll Bet The Sweeps On That!

I am all for romance and showing affection to the ones you love, but Valentine’s Day comes with far too many expectations. Expectations that are put in our head by marketing experts who try and sell us the idea of what a perfect valentine’s day entails.

However, I don’t let this jaded commercial aspect of the holiday take away my views on what this holiday means to me. Afterall, we all need a reminder once in a while about what’s really important in life. Sitting down to a meal is an amazing way to bond with family and friends. Eating together fosters warmth, communication and a sense of belongingness. It is a ritual that nourishes both the body and the soul. So regardless of your relationship, I encourage you to enjoy a meal with one or more loved ones any day of the year!
