14 Ways to Say "I Love You"

{Photo source: here}

I know some of you out there are V-Day downers...saying that it's ridiculous to especially focus one month on showing your loved one you care when it should be shown year round. I understand your thinking, but really....what harm can be done? These little "investments" as I call them may seem momentary...but.....if done thoughtfully... you and your Valentine are bound to reap the benefits not just this month, but all year round. ;)

~14 Ways to say "I Love You"~

1. Surprise your Valentine with breakfast in bed or
muffins and coffee before he/she goes into work :)
2. Leave love notes in random places around the house
such as in shoes, the refrigerator, inside a closed laptop, etc.
3. Clean his/her home office or work space---just make
sure you don't mess with the somewhat "organized" piles
4. Cook up their favorite dinner
5. Offer to take him/her out on a date---pick a favorite
place and a movie he/she would enjoy seeing.
6. Write "Be Mine" in the steamed up mirror
after you get out of the shower...or an old tube of lipstick
works well, too :)
7. Randomly ask your Valentine to dance with you---
it could be right there in the living room or kitchen, or
out & about like in the parking lot when you've finished shopping
8. Make your loved one a handmade Valentine's card and
write a letter telling him/her why you want them to be yours
9. Write him/her a poem---
don't be scared, it doesn't have to be perfect
10. Flowers. Chocolate. Card. 'Nough said.
11. Speak kindly & tenderly
12. Offer to help him/her with a pressing project
13. Compliment your Valentine
14. Say "I Love You" out loud. Many, many times.
