I go back and forth every year when it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day. On one hand, I believe that it is a holiday made up by the greeting card makers and candy corporations to turn a profit. On the other hand, I believe it is a fantastic rhythm in your year to make sure you spend some extra attention on your marriage.
Focusing on making Valentine’s Day meaningful requires planning and being intentional. Valentine’s Day often comes with a lot of pressure to buy extravagant gifts, which can cause us to spend too much money, gifting our spouse with a ridiculous giant stuffed bear or an unwanted box of calories in the form of chocolates.
