My kids sure know how to plot a coup when it comes to celebrating special days like birthdays, wedding anniversary and even Valentine. So last night they came to meet me in the bedroom asking me about what I intend to buy for their daddy as a Valentine gift. I smiled๐Ÿ˜€ knowing that it was a strategy to ensuring that we do have a special eating out time as a family. Eventually, I told them I had plans of getting my only “lover”, their daddy something… None of them Know what I am planning… It’s a family party…๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚You are invited if you can travel across the world! Then I asked if they would love to have a Valentine present from me; you can imagine the resounding YES! ๐Ÿ˜So I am on the lookout for their presents before I get a query…For me, It is time for family love!๐Ÿ‘ช๐Ÿ’‘

Here are Ideas to Help You have a Sweet and Memorable Valentine.

Love should be an everyday affair not a just a one-day special event. But then again life gets busy and days like Valentine reminds about revamping our love life.

What have you got planned for this Valentine? Seriously you do not need to go on a date with anyone if you are not in the mood or have no love relationship going.

Singles:

  • ย Find a nice cool eatery, ice cream joint or amala joint(African Yoruba dish joint) ย and take yourself out. Sit and enjoy your meal alone or you could take the time to make new friends.
  • After a hard day’s work because this Valentine actually falls on a work day; buy a pack of popcorn and cold drinks on your way home. Take a shower, get cozy on your couch or bed and watch a good old movie, munching away with your popcorn.
  • ย And reading or completing that book you have been meaning to finish might not be a bad idea. Accompany your read with a nice treat.
  • ย Hang out with your friends and family.ย 
  • Self-love – Get a nice hair-do; pedicure & manicure; or massage.
  • Or simply have a good night sleep and rest. Time to catch up your much-needed sleep after the much sleepless night.

Couples:

  • Buy your partner/spouse a gift not necessarily something expensive. The idea is to say…”Hey, I still love you and you mean so much to me”.
  • Plan a date: When was the last time you took out time to eat out, talk and just be alone.
  • Read a “relationship book” aloud to each other and accompany it with a nice treat; anything to munch and drink.
  • ย Watch a movie you both love and reminds you of when you started your love journey together.
  • You can decide to have a couples dinner in your home or out if you prefer. Invite another couple who are your friends over.
  • Write a love letter and address it to your spouse, putting it right where he/she can see it.
  • Do something special for each other like helping with chores around the house.

Family:ย 

Valentine is a good time to reaffirm your love for each other as a family.

  • Buy a valentine gift or write a love note in a card for your children. Let them know that they are very much loved.
  • Have a family dinner; talk about the history of Valentine; what genuine love means and about God’s love.
  • Visit your lonely neighbors and share a cake or meal with them.
  • Don’t forget the grandmas and grandpas. Allow your kids to call their grandparents and wish them a love-filled Valentine.
  • Give your parents a call if they are far away and tell them, you love them.

MOST IMPORTANTLY REACH OUT AND SHOW SOME LOVE TO SOMEONE, ANYONE NOT NECESSARILY PEOPLE IN YOUR CLIQUE! A kind word, a hug; an invitation, a card or gift to just say “you are loved” will suffice!

And you are loved tooโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน!

Happy Valentine!!

Your friends have someone coming to give them a memorable Valentine and you don’t.

Smile, Love comes softly…
Don’t give in to the pressure of feeling Left out or lonely.

Instead of feeling unloved why don’t you step out to show some love to someone today. It could be a friend, a neighbor, your parents even. Just do something nice for someone.

Single and feeling lonely this Valentine? Come on get yourself out there and give yourself a treat. You don’t need a man to necessarily take you out.

Remember love comes softly getting a quick Valentine partner without thinking can get you in a mess after the day passes.

Come on you are loved beyond Valentine’s day.

Love comes softly and it will happen for you.

๐Ÿ˜˜ Loads of love ย ๐Ÿ’ž from me,

Big or Small Valentine Gift… Make a Wish… ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’žHappy Valentine to You Especially… From my heart

Valentine’s day comes with love blues. How do you intend spending yours?

My daughter and son are all over the house searching for gift items to take to their friends in school. At first they said we could buy as little as 50 Naira sweet while we were driving home.
The next words painted a bigger picture.

My daughter said: “Our teacher said that if we bring a small gift then we get a small gift back but if it is big then we get a big one! Haha…
Daddy : But I thought you said any small gift was OK.
Mummy : laughing – wo me I don’t have money for gift. When you get home look for those birthday gift items lying around in the house.

When we got home my son set out designing a Val card while his sister intent on getting a big gift from school wanted to wrap about two big gift items!

My Children, they are celebrating this valentine more than mum and dad ooo. ๐Ÿ˜€ย img_20170101_120340

Whether you get a big or small gift… Enjoy your valentine.

Happy Valentine ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“
